Mr. Jinnah rocking his balmoral boots, made by John Lobb!
[FYI - I could be wrong about the shoe manufacturer. In Jinnah’s mausoleum there is a pair of his balmoral boots made by John Lobb. In Wazir Mansion, in Karachi, there is another pair of his balmoral boots which was made by Hellstern & Sons, Paris. I am assuming these ones are made by John Lobb because this photo was most likely taken in London, England].

In the late afternoon the Quaid, with Miss Jinnah, flew to Peshawar to present colours to an Infantry Brigade, and to hold a large garden party at Government House.
