The Denver Post recently published a handful of interesting photos from Afghanistan in the 1960s. The images were taken by an American teacher, Dr. William Podlich, who travelled to Kabul on a two-year stint with UNESCO. His wife and two teenage daughters travelled with him.
Podlich took many photos of daily life in Afghanistan while documenting the life of his family. The images, which you can see here show a much different place than the Afghanistan we often see today.
