An amazingly clean postcard image listed as Tamil Girl, found on ebay last week.  The designs on her saree pallu are wonderful.  She does appear to be holding a very young puppy, and wears lots of ear jewellery.  Just a great photograph from around the 1920s or so.

Indian Army: 1st Gurkha Rifle Regt. c1890 The 1st battalion took to wearing rifle green in 1888 and this officer wears the typical British rifle regiment uniform. It differed markedly from the uniform worn by Gurkha native officers in that the well-tailored tunic was decorated with 5 rows of black braid. The collar and cuffs were scarlet and his sleeve is embellished with an Austrian knot to show that he is below the rank of captain, and the two pips on his shoulder denote lieutenant rank.

An unusual postcard view dated 1909 shows two saree-wrapped young ladies in a studio setting. No blouses can be seen because of the closely draped sarees, and other details are a little indistinct. The effect is quite atmospheric, muted and sublime. A large-scale geometric design on the seated model’s saree glows silkily, while the carpet behind adds a dark richness as well. I’d believe they are sisters, but we really don’t know anything.
