Iranian Used and Rare Book Store Just Like the Old Days - a Mess!

Dewey died trying to decimal this system.
Each week, the Daily Telegraph in Great Britain holds a travel Big Picture competition, and last week Alby Ball of Harrow, Middlesex, won a Nikon Coolpix S640 camera, worth £249.99 ($396), for this photograph of a well-stocked bookshop in Shiraz, Iran.

Lovers of old book shops in the West will fondly recall this as once being a common sight; now, alas, lost to the Internet. Book lovers of a certain stripe will recognize their living room.
