The Shirted And The Shirtless - J. C. Hill in Auckland Star, New Zealand, 1931.

J. C. Hill of the Auckland Star, New Zealand, shows a parade of the leaders of the various political movements of the world in 1931 associated with the wearing of shirts of various colours before a bare-chested Gandhi, who, unimpressed, turns his gaze away from them. But on his way back to India from Britain, Gandhi called on Benito Mussolini, the fascist ruler of Italy, in Rome. The meeting was brief. Gandhi was not impressed by his host and told him he was building a house of cards. "His eyes are never still," he commented later.
