1956 Hawaa’ al-Jadeeda magazine

On one of my many excursions to Khan al-Khalili in Cairo, I came across a small little antique shop. It was late at night and the owner was itching to close shop – I’m sure I could’ve spent all night there, but I didn’t stay very long. The shop was full of old records, family photos, postcards, books, and magazines. The one thing I procured there that night was a women’s magazine from 1956, Hawaa’ al-Jadeeda (New Eve). What I wouldn’t give to go back and spend hours in that dusty old shop…

I don’t have a scanner, so photos of photos will have to suffice for now:
