    A newspaper clipping (from Pakistan’s daily, ‘Morning News’) with a report on how Pakistani pop fans gate-crashed their way into a bar at the Karachi Airport where the famous pop band The Beatles were having a drink. They had arrived in Karachi (1963) to get a connecting flight to Hong Kong. Between the 1960s and late 1970s the Karachi Airport was one of the busiest in the region.

    Western tourists sunbathing on a Karachi beach (early 1960s).

    A group of American tourists on a ‘crabbing trip’ in Karachi. ‘Crabbing’ (catching crabs) was a thriving tourist activity in Karachi where tourists would rent boats from the coastal Kimari area of the city and ‘go crabbing.’ The boats mostly belonged to men belonging to the ‘Afro-Pakistani’ community in Karachi and some of them had small barbecue kitchens and bars fitted in the boats. The boats are still there, but not the tourists.

    A modern 'rail car' made in Pakistan with the collaboration of Japanese engineers parked at the #Lahore Railway Station in 1964. Popular with travellers wanting to move rapidly between cities, the cars were commissioned out of service in the 1980s

    Now some about the old city of Lahore;

    (I invite you Indian members too to take part in this one, for Lahore once stood as the capital and centre of Punjab in the whole of Hindustan, pre-partition pictures welcome too)

    There's an old saying in Punjabi;

    'Jinnay Lahore nai vekhya, o jamya ee nai'.

    Translation: Those who haven't seen Lahore, have not lived.
