Tajikistan Boys Clothes: Activities--Work

Figure 1.--Here we see a Tajik boy working in a traditional metal working shop. The imahe is undated, but was probably taken in the early 20th century.

Tajikistan until the Soviet era was a very traditional society. Most boys began working at a very early age. Only with the Soviet era did it become common for children to attend school. Educating girls in particular was a novel concept. We have little information on boys working before the Soviet era, but suspect that many followed the trades of their fathers. We are also unsure how the transition to the Soviet era was made.
