Karayou Shepherd in Ethiopia

Mata-Hara, Ethiopia
Karayou Shepherd 
Photo-Art, George Talanos, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 

This real-photo postcard is postmarked around 1955.

The sender writes:
All continues to go well.  Africa is almost beyond belief for the boys as well as myself.  We have an interview with the king tomorrow.  As he rarely grants them to visitors, we are all quite excited.

Haile Selassie I  (23 July 1892 – 27 August 1975), was Ethiopia's regent from 1916 to 1930 and Emperor from 1930 to 1974. 

He is on the stamps that are on the back of this postcard.  I wonder if this is who they were able to interview???
