An lithographic postcard, published in India, possibly by "Haji Yusuf Haji Mohammed. Pictures, Post-cards & Cutlery Merchant. Grant Road Cross-Lane. Bombay-7." Out of the perhaps two dozen such cards in one collection of the series, only two have this blind stamp on the back, so the firm may also have only been distributors. In any case, by this time lithographic cards were rare, but this series boasts exceptional colours, unusual characters like this "Ahmedabad Hindu," and many characters likely to be found in Bombay.
