Artist drawn vintage postcards of India

Hello again all. Well it's been over 2 weeks since my last proper blog update as I've been on the west coast of France on holiday. I did manage to "recycle" two old blog postings in my absence but having now unpacked and prized the bikes from the roof and back of the car, I'm now ready for a new update. Today's theme is India. I must admit I did think that I'd blogged about vintage postcards of India before, but on searching through my previous entries all I could find was the one on Tiger Hunting. All those I've included below are artist drawn, ofter from artists I've never come across elsewhere, e.g. W.Poole and F.G.Paxbury.

I think the two of Kashmir by F.G.Paxbury are probably my favourite of the batch, although the colours on all of them are stunning.

The Glen, Simla, India, by the artist W.Poole, published by Thacker, Spink & Co.

Jakko from Prospect, Simla, India, by the artist W.Poole, published by Thacker, Spink & Co.

Temple at Annandale, Simla, India, by the artist W.Poole, published by Thacker, Spink & Co.
