Default Of Hamadan, Mahabad and Mehravan / Mehraban

In another thread the names in the title (or variations thereof) of this thread were discussed, i.e. Hamadan, Mahabad, Mehravan (or Mehraban) re whereabouts being towns or areas, etc. I seem to recall saying I had Iranian friend/s - a husband (Iranian) and wife pair - who owned a nearby rug shop and would go and ask to get a 'locals' view.

Well they did me / us one better than explaining where they were, the actually gave me an old book with an old map in, copied below.

The crop of same shows the three towns: red, green and purple dots respectively.

The also let me copy from another old book the other two described 'Mehrabans'.
