This is the only photo of the entire family and the original is now at the Royal Ontario Museum. It was taken around the time the family moved into the apartment on Napier Street in the Saddar neighbourhood of Karachi which became the family home. 

The family called their parents “Pai” and “Mai”.

Most of the photographs in this collection date back about five decades.
