A dazzling pictorial journey across colonial India from an unusual perspective, To Dear Harry Boy records the impressions of a British cable joiner as he works his way around the subcontinent, through a series of postcards addressed to his young son. Connecting people to the electric grid as he goes, this beautiful collection of images – almost 300 postcards sent between 1907-1911 – along with Arthur Allan’s jottings, offer a fascinating glimpse of India in the early 20th century from a working man’s perspective.
