Photographer's Note

L'Aga Khan III avait choisi en Nubie un site pour y faire construire une villa pour y soigner ses rhumatismes, en se faisant recouvrir de sable. Au-dessus de cette villa il avait fait édifier son mausolée. La photo montre le mausolée. Pour ce qui est du personnage le site suivant donne sa biographie qui se termine par le paragraphe qui suit.
Pakistan's creation owes a great deal to the hard work of Aga Khan. After the creation of Pakistan, Aga Khan remained a friend and a well-wisher of Pakistan. Aga Khan fell ill in 1954 during his visit to Dhaka and from then on struggling with ill health, died on July 11, 1957 of a heart attack in Switzerland. He was buried in Egypt. After his death, he was succeeded by his grandson, Aga Khan the IV.
