4 rare photos of His Highness the Aga Khan at Dar es Salaam’s Aga Khan Boys Secondary School

Introduced by ABDULMALIK MERCHANT

This is a collection of 4 rare pictures from Dar es Salaam that (Alwaez) Ali Rajabali shared with me during my visit to Vancouver. They should be of immense interest to students who are in the photos, especially the first group photo in which they are  pictured with their class teachers and members of the Aga Khan Education Board.

I believe there are countless rare photos in family albums that have been stowed away for decades. Please take the time to search your archives and share historical photos and documents with Jamati members around the world through this blog, Simergphotos, or its sister blogs Simerg and Barakah. We will be delighted to publish the photos.

Assign your children or grandchildren the noble task of seeking out important historical pictures from your archives, and reward them for their efforts. Otherwise, an important historical moment may be lost forever! Let’s keep our history alive for generations to come by seeking out the photos and having them digitized.
