A clever postcard by master artist M.V. Dhurandhar showing the modernization of fashion among women in his hometown of Bombay. This card was published by D.B. Taraporevala & Sons, the city bookstore and publisher that played a major role in both publishing postcards and bringing Western prints and media to the attention of artists like Dhuranadhar and Raja Ravi Varma. Note how little details are captured in this transformation - the modern woman has no nose-ring, for example, but the bangle on her wrist remains the same.
