Nehrujinnah.jpg(250 × 392 pixels, file size: 28 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)
English: Muhammed Ali Jinnah and Jawahar Lal Nehru walking in the grounds of Government House, Simla, British India. Image taken from British Library (repository of India Office materials) here, described here. While there is no perfect link-up, the images the library has on Jinnah are listed here and the two men are listed as "walking", which they are not in the other two Jinnah/Nehru images. While there is not certainty, it is overwhelmingly likely this is the image referred to.
Date 1946
