The central bazaar in Peshawar, capital of the North West Frontier Province (NWFP, now KPK) was a common postcard subject, even for distant publishers like H.A. Mirza in Delhi. Murrays Handbook for Travellers in India Burma and Ceylon (1928) wrote: "Peshawar has a great transit trade by caravan from Kabul and Bokhara and Central Asia. The Bazars are well worth a visit, both for the objects they contain–many of them not seen in Central India–and for the fierce-looking and picturesquely dressed tribesmen from Afghanistan and Central Asia. The special manufacture of Peshawar is bright-coloured scarves, or lungis, worn as turbans. Waxcloth work and some ornamental needlework are also made here, as well as knives; a special form of wood-carving flourishes" (p. 376).
