TEHRAN – A royal electrical telegraph receiver along with some relevant documents, once belonged to Iran’s Ministry of Court during Pahlavi era, will go on show at the Sa’dabad Cultural-Historical Complex in northern Tehran.

The exhibit is organized on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution and the electrical telegraph has never been on a public show before, and CHTN reported.

Several experts have been invited to deliver speeches during the opening ceremony, which will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on February 6.

Sprawled on about 110 hectares of a mountainside parkland, the Sa’dabad complex was once a royal summer residence during Qajar era (1789–1925) and its subsequent Pahlavi epoch (1925–1979).

The exhibit will be running through February 24.
