Interfaith Meeting, Liverpool, 1965 Added 11 November 2015

Maulana Tufail is fourth from the left. The photograph above was found by the family of Maulana Tufail. On the back it carries the following information:

Peter Kaye Photography, 24 Newinton/Renshaw Street, LIVERPOOL 1. 174, Park Road, Liverpool, 8. Tel. ROYal 136

The year which is partly visible on the poster in the top left of the photograph can be deduced to be 1965 by reference to the life of Maulana Tufail. This is corroborated by the words ‘International Co-operation’ on the poster which can be seen after ‘1965’, since 1965 was designated by the UN as the Year of International Co-operation. We contacted the photography firm mentioned above and they believe that the venue in the photo is St George’s Hall, Liverpool. Looking at the speakers on the platform, the occasion seems to be an Interfaith meeting.
