This picture is perfect for this thread, a street scene from Delhi supposedly from 1939. How many cars can you spot ( in full or partial view ) ?

One could rent this nifty old truck (already probably 10 years old at the time of publication) for your advertising needs.

the delhi pic is at Jama Masjid, Ivory palace still exists there, but no longer trades in ivory. interestingly, all the cars are with closed bodies.

Hi.
In the 1950's double decker buses with a similar grill used to ply. Logo was Regal. Is it possible to know the date of the pictures ? Maybe there were single deckers before 1950 so I wouldnt know. I started travelling in BEST buses around 1956.
Regards

This bus is a Dodge Forward Control and was made by PAL since the mid 1960's for about seven to eight years. It was available as a truck and bus chassis.
