An example of workmanship in Samarkand, Uzbeckistan.

Delicate workmanship in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. I took the pictures in 1968 long before the restoration began. This and other pictures show the result of neglect on buildings. An earthquake in 1966 also caused considerable damage to historical buildings as well as residential and commercial areas of Samarkand, Tashkent and Bokhara. Khaliq
