This Sunday’s tinted postcard shows a “maybe” Indian actress, circa 1940. An ebay listing from Mumbai said the woman was an actress, but there was no other information. Her choli is a cute Western style top, perhaps with a navy stripe to suit the broad hint of middy blouse. It brings an undeniable air of modern chic to a plain, sheer saree in a shade of gold the colour of rare orchids. A leafy late-deco print on the seat and the lady’s red lipstick are other delightful period touches. Please post your thoughts if you have an idea who our model from 75 years ago might be!
