Bath time - and Dhoby time outside Kiddepore Docks, Calcutta. Saw similar scenes over 40 years ago.

You didn't mention the dung patties drying on the wall for the fires, no wonder they needed to wash up after making them. Those fires burning were the major source of the Calcutta "aroma therapy".
Great pictures

Quite right Trevor. I have to repeat though, Calcutta has been cleaned up lots, no aroma therapy when we were there in February, 2010.

It was great to see those latest pictures, the dock gate was much as I remember it. Must have been a great trip down "memory lane". Thank you so much for posting them.
