Old Indian Photographs

Are you interested in vintage photographs you will never find in any book, archive, or museum. Here's a wonderful site that provides miles and miles of them.

I was mesmerised by the pictures - in black and white - and could go back in time to that age when an unfree nation was seeking freedom and a people was just waking from a long sleep of oppression.

I still wonder about that age. What held the people together, what went on in their minds, what did they dream about for themselves? Surely USA which is the dream of most Indians was the Wild West in those days. Did we have a view of ourselves, of what we are now? Could they even think what a new nation they would be sire-ing. So what? Anyone?
