16 Vintage Pictures Of Egyptian Women In The 1960s

6 months ago By Konafa Team

 

We recently had the good fortune of stumbling across Vintage Egypt, a Tumblr blog dedicated to vintage Egyptian images and ads from the 1940s-1960s. Sadly the blog stopped posting in 2013, so we thought we’d bring some of its best content to life again. We were particularly struck by the beauty, style and strength of women portrayed in their images, and the 60s especially caught our eye. Enjoy!
