A beautifully hand-tinted postcard of the Residency in what is now Bengaluru in the Indian state of Karnataka.
A postcard by the great Indian painter M.V. Dhurandhar illustrating an Englishwoman looking over a coolie offering his services with an empty basket. Note the cleverly positioned Indian woman with a basket on her head in the background.
The imperialism is repugnant, but there is no doubt that this rare card by British publisher C.W. Faulkner & Co. is a masterpiece of design.
