[Original caption] Snake Charmers, Calcutta. The Snake Charmer, as a rule, is an itinerant being, who is glad to charm his snakes in your compound, or before your house or bungalow, for a small reward. The snakes uncoil and erect themselves to the sound of weird music, and seem thoroughly fascinated. They are usually quite harmless, their poison fangs having been extracted. [end]
