I can, from my time in Ceylon 1953 to 1967, relate to ALL these pictures. I remember Colombo jetty when it was like that I have gone out on launches from that jetty many times to visit ships in the harbour. The Town Hall hasn’t changed any and Galle Face, at least the front, is just as I remember from my time. Peradeniya is much the same. So these are COOL. Not postcards per se. Cigarette Cards — which they used to include in packets. I have found about 240 of these.

Good interesting piece by the great folks at the “Daily Mail” (my favorite newspaper, all my adult life, and the only one I still read, every day, without fail).
The ‘Routemaster‘ reference, ALAS, has to do with the U.S. audience. When I first read it I broke out in a COLD SWEAT. Sri Lanka had changed which side of the road they drove on. I had to Google and checked. ‘Thank Buddha’ they had NOT. They, quite CORRECTLY, drive on the LEFT-HAND SIDE as you are supposed to do. So the British ‘Routemaster’ buses are driving on the right side as they are meant to do — which means on the left-hand side. Other than that the rest is fine. Enjoy.

of the ‘Legalize Prostitution Bill’.
** ** **
I do NOT know the pros and cons of this BUT a quick scan of the Web relative to this Bill, i.e., HB 1614, indicates that the current, worldwide, thinking is that decriminalizing of prostitution is a POSITIVE thing. OK. I am fine with that.
It is just the contrast that upsets me. So we could now see an increase in prostitutes, of BOTH sexes in our few cities, BUT heaven forbid IF any of the females expose their nipples.
Just for completeness here is the start of HB 1525, the proposed law that will clamp down on the public display of the female nipple. Check this post, from January 12, 2016, for more on HB 1525.
