NAIROBI (HAN) April 21, 2016. Public Diplomacy & Regional Security News. By: Martin Plaut. I bought this photograph.
The date is suggested as 1946. The writing in Tigrigna on the wall says Muslim Youth Association – which is repeated in Italian.
I am only assuming that the location is Cairo: that is what the vendor suggested.
On the reverse is writing, but I am having difficulty working out what it says.
Can anyone identify who these people are, or what the club did?
About Martin Plaut
While I was at university in Johannesburg I was involved in the Soweto uprising of June 1976. It was a traumatic event, but eventually led to the freedom of South Africa with the end of apartheid in 1991.
I have worked on Africa since the 1970’s, first for the Labour Party and then for the BBC.
I was Africa editor, until I retired in November 2012 and I am currently a Fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies in London.
