In an irreverent 1917 publication by students of FCC, the photograph (and title) above had the following caption:

“On the right a student of the First Year Class; on the left a student of the Sixth Year (M.A.) Class. The contrast illustrates the remarkable physical development which accompanies the mental culture which F. C. C. gives her students.”

Image and text: Pictorial Number of the Forman Christian College Monthly, August, 1917. Published by Rev R L Wilson, Forman Christian College, Lahore. Printed by Edwin Haward at The Civil and Military Gazette Press.
While the photographer has not been named for this photograph, the final page of the publication states: “The Editors gratefully acknowledge their obligation to Mr. Ferger for the majority of the pictures herein contained.”
