in farsi, کوشک (pronounced kušk), refers to an object that protects or is a shade maker. the kiosk has a history in the Middle East that spans over seven centuries. a word that was originally used to designate a place in the shade, or in the case of the turkish kösk, a summer residence for the wealthy, has changed over time to encompass not only shaded vendors and newspaper stands, but also parking-lot ticket dispensers and photo printing machines.
