EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures a trio of Pathan dancing girls from the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan, circa 1909. The region, now known as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, was then part of British India. The girls, dressed in traditional attire, are seen gracefully performing an ancient dance, their faces expressive and full of emotion. The Pathan women are adorned with intricate jewelry, including heavy bangles, necklaces, and earrings. Their foreheads are decorated with bindis and plates, adding to their regal appearance. The girls wear loose-fitting pantaloons, or trousers, which were a common part of the Pathan women's traditional attire. The setting of the photograph is the bustling city of Peshawar, which was a major cultural and commercial center in the region. The girls' dance was likely a form of traditional entertainment for the local population, showcasing their rich heritage and artistic skills. The photograph offers a glimpse into the past, providing a window into the lives of these women and their vibrant culture. It is a reminder of the rich history and diversity of the people of the North-West Frontier Province, a region that continues to captivate and intrigue visitors with its unique blend of tradition and modernity.
