The Collectors

Clare Arni & Martin Henry - UK

This image is taken from a larger collection built by Mr Martin Henry, an Englishman who lived in India for over 12 years. He started collecting vintage postcards of India and South India shortly after moving back to Edinburgh in 1981 as they reminded him of the country he loved and lived in for so many years. Since then he has amassed a large collection of postcards showcasing the people and lifestyle of this land from a time long forgotten. His daughter Clare Arni, now owns the collection in memory of her father and his love for India.
