John Tallis, 1851, British India

I am fascinated with India during British colonialism. Coming from a “country” that was colonized by the British, it is always interesting to see the effects of imperialism upon other nations.

Though I know that many negative effects came of the British occupation of India, I am also enamoured by the romanticized ‘golden days’. The beautiful jewels, the glamourous lifestyle, the colourful clothing…it all just seems to dazzling to be real and good.
