India Old Tuck's Oilette Postcard Madras A Road Scene, Black Town Native Quarter

Vintage British Indian Tuck's Oilette Art Artist Drawn Colour Old Post card. India. Madras, A Road Scene. Native Coolie. Palm Trees. Street Scene. TRAM.

This is a road in the thickly-populated native quarter of Black Town, west of the Esplanade. Here under the broad-fronded palms the bhisti goes along carrying water in gourds slung from a yoke on his shoulders, the bright dresses of native women and children make gay spots of colour against the red sand of the road, and all the busy life of an Indian city goes on under the low-roofed houses palm-sheltered from the sun.
