Recommended Posts

I was looking through some of my grandparents papers the other day and came across this clipping from an English language Indian newspaper. Knowing my grandparents it will be not later than 1939, probably earlier, so think  British Raj:

Chauffeur: “This, madame, is the hand brake - it’s to put on very quickly, in case of an emergency.”

Madame: “I see - something like a kimono.”
