Nehru in New York

January 28, 2010

Walking quite casually on Broadway, near Trinity Church, I found this on the street: commemorating Nehru’s visit to NYC. A few steps ahead, Pakistani Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan is likewise immortalised on the streets of New York.
A little internet trawling brought this up: the Times reporting on Nehru’s visit. And this little gem: a Time magazine cover, published on the same date as the visit (Oct. 17, 1949).
