Bang, bang, bang, Its the 1950s!

zavmWordPress has been frustrating – I can’t seem to access it more often than not. Apologies for being away so long.

On tumblr as always you can follow sari history and the decade which kind of defined Indian style for most if us today, the 1950s. Added bonus, the loveliest and most talented of heroines worked in this decade!

  1. Those look like lovely Mysore crepe sarees….my favourite kind. They fall so beautifully.

    Hi, Firstly, your blog is an amazing storehouse of information and images!!! They are a real treat to read. I am part of the curatorial staff of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum), Mumbai. We are currently developing a gallery on Textiles in the museum. The images in your blog will be of great use for us in the gallery for educational and display purposes. We would be acknowledging the sources.

    Kindly guide me the procedures required to acquire these images.

    ​Looking forward to hearing from you. ​

    ​Thanks and regards, Divya Pawathinal​

      Hi first thank you for your kind words.

      I don’t have copyright on the images here (bar a few personal ones). Given the blog is strictly non-profit and purely educational, I post them and always make sure I credit them. So the links to the original image will definitely be there. If you don’t find a particular link, do let me know and I can direct you to the original source of the image.

      All written matter is purely mine. So if you want to use it it would be nice if you could credit the blog!
