Photographer's Note

After my ride in the toy train I spent a couple of days in Ooty (Ootacamund, Udagamandalam) during my first journey through southern India in March 1973 .

Ooty was founded by the colonial administrators who needed a refuge in the mountains away from the heat of the lowlands. Nowadays it is mainly a holiday resort for Indians. As such it offered few excitements for me, who was (and still am) more interested in the hustle and bustle of large cities with a lot of things to watch in the streets. So although it was nice to get away from the oppressive heat I found Ooty relatively boring. This photo must have been taken in the Botanical garden, a kind of place I probably wouldn't have visited if there had been a lot of other places to see.

I have nothing to say about this photo, and very little to say about the workshops, one showing a street with perhaps a slight touch of England, the other an impressive private building from colonial days.

Here is a larger version of the main photo. All photos were scanned from Kodachrome slides.
