Photographer's Note

This is a traditional cooler. Strange? I call it air shaft, wind catcher or as locally is called BADGIR. In central Iranian desert architecture houses have at leat one air shaft which is catching winds from different directions and directs them into the house rooms. This is one of the complicated multi direction air shafts in Kashan. The photo has been scanned and blured.
