Clark Street Saddar 1970’s

Frozen in time.  Clark Street, Saddar, Karachi of the 1970’s with a smartly dressed Traffic Police. (corrupt but less so; would be happy with Rs 5 for driving without  driving license!);  The Pen Corner was Agha’s Pen Corner (or Fountain Pen Corner) who sold and repaired Parker Pens and Mont Blanc Pens)   Real Cheap Jewelers (not sure how cheap though) There was a Pakola Depot further on with Regal Toyland next to it.
Note the cart with Dalda Ghee cans, probably for re-cycling ( Karachi was re-cycling way before the West;  paper, glass, metal, plastic, you name
Information courtesy of Mr. Feisal Rehimtoola and Edwin Figueredo, et al, veteran Karachiites.
