This is a rare travel poster from British India. The Railways were one the best gifts to India from the British in the 1800's. The first train started in Bombay and eventually all of India even the most remote parts were connected to each other by railway lines. Railways are a major part of Indian life, even today. The Train from Bombay to Poona is called the Deccan queen and holds a special place in Indian railways as a great luxurious accomplishment in the history of British India.
