The Tientsin gurdwara

“I passed it every day on my way to and from school (TGS) during 1938 and 1939. A uniformed guard at its entrance stopped any passers-by from entering the place. I could look down on to its grounds from my bedroom window. I’m attaching a picture of what I could see of the place. It’s the walled in treed lot with a central path crossing from the temple on the right (obscured by a back neighbour’s house) to the entrance gate on the left (obscured by another neighbour’s house). The temple flag on a tall flagpole standing beside the path is clearly visible.” Source: Desmond Power, author of “Little Foreign Devil.”
