India Old Tuck's Oilette Postcard Jeypore Jaipur, An Eastern Cemetery, Rajputana

Vintage British Indian Tuck's Oilette Colour Art Artist Drawn Postcard. India. Jaipur Jeypore, An Eastern Cemetery.

The Cemeteries of Rajputana, in which is situated the state of Jeypore, are as picturesque as all that surrounds the lives of the Rajputs. This fine race comes nearest in ideas, stature, aspect and demeanour, costume and equipage, to those of European chivalry of the feudal times. The Rajput Princes claim to be descended from the Sun and Moon.
