Photographer's Note

The "Pink City Express" is a train going between Delhi and Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan state. At least there was such a train in 1977, when this picture was taken. I think this "rickshaw wallah" would not mind that I use that name for his vehicle being pedalled down a street in the old central part of Jaipur.

Why Jaipur is called "The Pink City" should be obvious. The pink buildings, generally from the late 18th century, have made Jaipur one of the most popular destinations for tourists in India.

I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide. Here is a larger version.
