Here is another pretty transparency from the late 1950s or early ’60s… and it is neat because we get to see this lovely woman in a retro kameez suit (great print!) too. Ebay lists these as tourist shots but perhaps the photographer, likely the blond man seen in another image, knew the subject of his slides – they don’t look that random to me. The lightweight silk saree is in one of my very favourite colour combinations of orangey-red and purple. Our model’s checked choli, medallion necklace and large bun hairdo are all classic looks. Anyone recognise the place where the photographs were taken?
