No definitely not.the location is of course Trivandrum,front of the Chandrashekharan Nair stadium,Palayam before the flyover came there in 1986.I know of a 2 digit numbered Ponton,which may well have been the first ponton in Trivandrum.This ponton which you have shown belonged to Kulathungal Pothan father of Film actor Prathap pothan.He was a big businesman of the fifties and sixties, and his was the first highrise building in Trivandrum which was sadly demolished in 2007 for MG road widening.
This car along with 3 other pontons were famous cars in that era in this city
