The Beeb has a cool little collection of pictures of the India that was. Go to the right-most column and click on the little box titled "Capturing History". (The site won't let me do a direct link to the slideshow.)
My favorites: Brown Girl on the dead leopard, White Boy getting a pedicure (and Brits wonder why people find them, er, effete?), India's answer to the Rolling Stones (that's Brian Jones with a sitar) and a grand shot of Grand Trunk Road. (Wow, just look at that picture. I thought you could see so many horses only in a Cecil B. DeMille movie!)
These pics are taken from a forthcoming book titled "India Then and Now". Anyone seen it yet? Some reviews.
