  2. Javed Ali Khan says:

    Well at least the classroom is full and they seem to be paying attention (maybe to the photographer). Will we still see attentive students in a college class today?

  3. Malique says:

    I could go no further than the benches which were still the same when I left Govt.College some 3 years ago…

  4. Jahanara says:

    Interesting picture from so far back. I wonder what became of these individuals over time.

  5. Umar says:

    Well, at least I got the physics part correct… :)

  6. NoPcthoughts says:

    As Hussain has already said … its “Pakistani students in freshman physics class at the Government College.

    Location: Lahore, Pakistan
    Date taken: December 1947
    Photographer: Margaret Bourke-White
    Size: 1280 x 953 pixels (17.8 x 13.2 inches ”

    Its a bit of cheat really, so the prize should go to ‘Hussain’ who I note has alreadt posted the correct answer already! …..

    The picture is here ….

    http://images.google.com/hosted/life/l?imgurl=6bdb52d57b25845b&q=site:tbn0.google.com+lahore+students+1947&usg=__CyTAjCIie4PCI6gr_PtL8s5Q2n0=&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dsite:tbn0.google.com%2Blahore%2Bstudents%2B1947%26ndsp%3D20%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den&um=1

    and there are some others as well. Note the women tucked around a corner in another of the sets.

    Margaret Bourke-White took some stunning images from around the gloge in the 1940’s …. many from the sub continent at partition.
