Rare photograph....the interesting part of this photograph is that, all of them are ladies. There are young girls wearing sarees in different style. Most probably the women in this photo are from the Chettiar community.
If you look closely at their jewelery, it show the status of their wealth in the community. In the modern day age, it is incomparable with the current trend with the community back then.
This photo was found in Penang, one of chettiar left it and went back to India. According to the person who passed this photo, it was taken between 1910's to 1920's in India, base on the way they were dressed and the quality of the picture was taken.
