From the earliest Tuck's Kolkata postcard series, when the firm did not print its later standard captions on the back of each card.
[Original caption] Interior of Taj, Agra. One of the most graceful and most impressive sepulchres in the world.
[Original caption] Golden Mosque, Lahore. This mosque has three gilt domes and was built in 1753 by Bikhari Khan, a favorite of the widow of Mir Mannu, who governed Lahore a short time after her husband's death.
[Original caption] Temple of Ramnagar. Commenced to be built by the famous Chair Singh, who in 1781 forced Hastings to retreat from Benares to the fort of Ramnagar.
[Original caption] Woman Water Carrier. It is no unusual sight in India to see women performing manual labour, and in some cases they perform harder tasks than the men.
[Original caption] A Persian Gypsy Woman and Children. These itinerant vendors of small articles travel far and wide through India, often pretending also to occult knowledge.
[Original caption] Gwalior Fortress-Colossal Figures. Gwalior Fortress stands stern and strong 300 feet above the town.
[Original caption] A Kerzawah is a popular method of transport in the Indo-Afghan frontier, the camel being the usual beast of burden, and able to carry four persons in a load.
An unusual "natural history" postcard from Tucks.
[Original caption] Ravages of White Ants: beams eaten out. The insect tribes of India may be said to be innumerable.
