Nostalgia Karachi


An image from our family archives dated 1953 of Karachi. It is a view of the Ilaco House and Victoria Road (now Abdullah Haroon Road). The trees are where Hotel Jabees stands today.

Karachi sure had some class back then (black suited men and snazzy old cars) does the gentlemen class still exist?

    The Mohatta exhibit I spoke of in my post has tons of photographs of the old-time Karachi, including Saddar, Frere Gardens with the statues in it, Clifton Beach when it used to have the Queen Victoria Pier, and the trams of Karachi!
