Vintage Indian Clothing

Family, Lucknow/Lahore - 8
Hajra Masroor (part of Urdu’s Bronte sisters) with her Nani and sisters - she is in the second row, left.  Given her 1929 birth date this is probably taken in the late 40s (and there is a bit of Nargis in Andaz in the girl in a sari on the right, second row). The wide salwars of the 40s/50s also recently seen in Midnight’s Children.
