Condition B+: repaired tears, creases, restoration and restored pin holes in margins; minor creases and abrasions in image.
Currently the capital of the small Indian state of Meghalaya, and the former capital of Assam, Shillong is referred to as "The Scotland of the East," because of its geological similarity to the Scottish Highlands. Newsome depicts none of the area's physical attractions in this poster, concentrating instead on the colorful attire of a local woman and the innovative manner in which she is transporting her baby.
