I must watch my words. I'm not sure that the country where I live would show as much care for me as was Mr. Rushdie's part. But let's go ahead.

Many Iranian signs belong to the UK-family: the girl is taller and she guides the boy.

More UK-family countries: Iceland, Finland, Southern Africa.

It came as a complete surprise to me. Iran hides women below loads of textile. They are unpeople on the street. And yet a common roadsign broadcasts a contradictory message showing girls with skirts above the knee.

Monsieur Jean radiates pride. He sees an analogy to his theory about feminism. Changes are imminent in Iran because this roadsign quietly erodes the revolutionary gospel.

The Year 2000 visit yielded several new signs showing a strong influence from several other countries.
Shiraz -> Pasargadae

Although this sign shows much more detail it is close to a sign from Austria and Portugal.
Ispahan
XI.2000; pict. H. De Meyer
The typical mediterranean sign.
Western Iran
XI.2000; pict. H. De Meyer
The same as a sign from Germany. Two un-people.
Ispahan

Shiraz

Both are close to a sign from Italy. There is a small difference in the hair-dress of the girl.
