3 Rare and Memorable Photos of His Highness the Aga Khan’s 1966 Nairobi Primary School Visit @Simergphotos

Publisher-Editor of Simerg, Simergphotos and Ismailitica

Juby Sprake (maiden name Juby Alibhai) of Vancouver, British Columbia, was recently introduced to this photo blog. To our delight, within days of viewing rare and historical photos of Mawlana Hazar Imam’s visits to the Aga Khan School in Nairobi, Kenya, in early to mid 1960’s (see links below), she retrieved  from her personal album three memorable photos of Mawlana Hazar Imam’s visit to her Aga Khan Primary School in 1966, when she was in Standard 3.

A smile came over Juby as she pointed herself out in the photo to me and her work colleague. Juby, as best as she could, recollected a few names of her classmates and teachers who appear in the photos, and we have included those names in the captions. However, we invite other students in the photos who have not been mentioned to submit their names, and we shall update the captions accordingly.

Also, just as Juby did for us, we invite our readers to visit their old family photo albums, and present to us rare historical photos such as the ones on this page and and other posts on this blog for publication.
