This picture was taken in the Assyrian village of Ashietha (modern day Turkey) in 1899, making it one of the oldest Assyrian photos (117 years old)

MrZ, this may interest you, both the first picture and the second one (1940) are of the same generational Zorna family! They have been playing the Zorna for over 125 years of not longer. These pictures were posted by their current great great grand son, who happens (you guessed it) a Zorna player in Iraq and a famous one too.

The second picture below was taken in 1940!

As you can see both pictures show Assyrians dancing khiga in Joulet Khomala. Simply amazing!

Amazing find. These pictures should be protected or archived.

My in-laws are Ashetnayeh. I wouldn't be surprised if some of these people are their great-grandparents.
