I just realised that Faster789 had shared this lovely period photo of GRJ1 (shot in the 60s maybe?). It still shows the different style fenders compared to what it wears today - wonder which were original?

Thanks for these - whats amazing is how so little has changed in Calcutta even now, in many parts.


In the taxi stand image we see one row of cars in inverted two tone colours - was there a separate class of taxi using these colours?

Spoke to Bhpian "Sarojesh" from Calcutta, and I was told that

"Calcutta had/has two kinds of taxis- yellow & black for Calcutta and yellow for all Bengal but this still doesn't explain the two tones colours at the outer row"

I think this will need some more research.

meanwhile some more Getty images pictures, including these two colored depictions of Calcutta.

It appears to be a 1954 Dodge Coronet or maybe Royal. I don't know what label they gave to international exported Dodges but they were Dodge front clips and Plymouth bodies.

I believe the Dodges were badged only as Kingsways. Interestingly in 1954 you could buy a saloon in right hand drive, and a convertible in left hand drive
