Kulri Bazaar, Mussoorie almost feels painterly in its alternating pattern light and soft dark fabrics. In the center, his back turned to us, but with no apparent import, is a British man wearing an infamous solar topee, the sartorial logo of the Raj. Two other men are casually walking up the bazaar hill. Little boys are fixated on the shop in the foreground. It is one of the more casual street scenes from the period, a fragment of hillstation reality dropped into our laps.
