It was not just European and American tourists who came to India; this unusual postcard shows a Japanese traveler on a camel with the guide helpfully holding up a Japanese flag. The camel bags still have English names on them though.
This artist-signed postcard includes a red French stamp, cancelled in 1930, in a slightly tilted position that might have meant, if the sender was adhering to The Language of Stamps, "Have you Forgotten Me?"
An unusual humorous hand-painted postcard, as if riding high on a camel makes someone "high class." Hand-painted postcards seem in style to echo much earlier 19th century Company painting styles.
