Notes on the Geography of Pakistan: Lahore: Modern: Photo 4

world pictures Pakistan: Lahore: Modern

We're six miles south of the Fort at Model Town, created in 1919 as the brainchild of a British-educated lawyer, Diwan Khem Chand. Familiar with Ebenezer Howard's work, Chand decided to build a garden city in Lahore. He set out to secure a thousand acres on which to build a thousand houses; in fact he secured 1,963 acres, on which 6,000 houses have been built. (This and the captions for the following pictures rely heavily on Chand's "Scheme for the Model Town and Its Realization," 1930, summarized by Aijazzudin's Lahore Recollected, 2003, pp. 206-212.)
