Fascinating 1960s Photos Show How Afghanistan Was Full of Life Before Taliban

The place really looked peaceful back in the days.

When you hear the word ‘Afghanistan,’ the last thing that will pop to mind would definitely be a laidback lifestyle. Nowadays, the republic has literally become a war zone mainly because of the Taliban, an Islamic fundamentalist political movement.

As it appears, however, things weren’t always dark and gloomy in the country. The vintage photos below show how the place was full of life back in the days. These images were taken in 1967 by Dr. Bill Podlich, a university professor from the United States who was assigned by UNESCO to work in Afghanistan for a couple of years. He captured a lot of interesting pictures at the time and now we couldn’t help but feel sad about how things turned around for the nation. It really looked peaceful back then.

It’s totally unfortunate how people there are now robbed of their freedom and of enjoying the simple things of life.
