Boring Postcards

[posted by Callimachus]

OK, now if you've been following this series of my collection of old boring postcards (and if you have, for chrissakes unplug the puter and get a life), you'll know something about my father's family and family friends circa 1890-1940. They went to safe, sober places like Cleveland and Myrtle Beach and Ocean City and the World's Fair.

So how did this one slip into the collection? The caption on the back identifies the scene as Bombay, India! Exotic and decadent, with a swirl of curry in the fleshpots.

And guess what? The postcard, however it found its way into their album, is still boring!
