    According to Majid Rezazad ʻAmu Zayn al-Dini, author of Zaynab Pasha (Tabriz: Akhtar, 2009), “another version of this photograph is kept at the archive of the Northwestern branch of the National Library and Archives in Tabriz. That photograph bears a handwritten line on the top, ‘Zaynab Pasha and Yuz Bashi Khavar and Nayib Kulsum in their youth.’ This identification has been confirmed by Tabriz Archives – the woman in white dress and scarf in this picture is Zaynab Pasha. Also, reputable researchers, such as Rahim Raʼis Niya and ʻAbd al-Husayn Nahidi Azar, who have written articles on Zaynab Pasha, have used this picture to introduce this revolutionary Tabrizi woman of the late Qajar era. Several years ago, based on this photograph, a statue of Zaynab Pasha, ordered by the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization of East Azarbayjan Province, was made and put into public view in Khanah-i Mashrutah-i Tabriz (Constitution House of Tabriz).
