While postcards of snake charmers were common in India, one of the more striking such views might be this one from Ahuja's studio in Rangoon, Burma. While one man touches a snake, the other uses not a flute but cymbals to manage the snakes. Note that the first man seems to have a rod for the lower part of his leg.
Sent fo Mrs. W.J. Barrat, 27 Clifton Rd., Maida Vale, London W. and postmarked Dec. 15, 1911: "Irawaddy River, nr. Bhamo, 15/12/11 We land today at our farthest point. It's very hot middle [of the] day but cold nights & mornings. All are well. The scenery just here is very grand. Have not heard from England for a month. Have missed all mails from home till now. I wired Uncle Wille about an advance you will probably have heard. Best love to all from us. Papa."
