How many years ago were these pics taken? So from what I see, there was a lane discipline that was being followed several decades ago & somewhere in between somehow all these has been forgotten!!!

Trust me, it looks so beautiful to watch so many vehicles on the road with road discipline.

Some images from traffic scenes of yesteryears.
A Premier 118NE loaded truck has run aground near Vasai- a early 1990's picture.

An image from 1974 when our PM was on a visit to Ahmedabad
Images of Traffic Scenes From Yesteryears-dsc06164.jpg
These two pictures are from September 1971-Jaikishan of the famous duo Shankar Jaikishan passed away and hi funeral cortège is shown leaving his residence.
Undoubtedly this duo is the best thing that happened to Bollywood music for me!
