Beauty Queen of Iraq in 1947

This is a picture of Renee Dangoor, Beauty Queen of Iraq in 1947. The beautiful Iraq in the forties was a rose wanting to flower on a beautiful life, wanting to grow in a period without restrictions and no backward imagination. It was a country, every time they wanted it to go backwards, would break the chains and reappear grasping the trees, the birds, the olives, the pollen, the dates and the oranges.
Renee Dangoor, a beautiful Iraqi woman burst out from that far away period and appeared to us through that archival picture.
Renee Dangoor greets you from the years of the forties and wishes you a happy year full of beauty, knowledge and understanding.
