Description

Dyers' and pan-sellers' shops in Pune. The shops are next door to one another: the dyer's on the left, in front of which is a bamboo frame to hang the cloth, with the pan-seller's on the right (check again). This is one of seven similar studies of small shops in the bazaar, probably the Sadr bazaar (from Arabic sadr, 'chief', also meaning a cantonment) made by Carpenter in Pune.
