Photographer's Note

Some may think it's a 1950's photo of Manhattan Bridge with old taxi models.

But this is the Howrah Bridge, a famous symbol of Kolkata and West Bengal. The bridge is one of the four on the Hooghly River and it successfully bears the weight of a daily traffic of approximately 80,000 vehicles and, possibly, more than 1,000,000 pedestrians.

This bridge is one of the finest cantilever bridges in the world - left to India by the British engineers.

You can see more Ambassador cars here and here.
