Post Card 5 ~ The Indian Coffee House, Kolkata, India

The Indian Coffee House has been a landmark on College Street in Kolkata since the early 1940’s. It was and still is a favorite meeting place for students, poets, artists, writers, and other intellectual types. Now owned by the Indian Coffee Workers Co-operative it looks much the same as it did in the late days of the Raj. One goes there for the ambiance and not the coffee which, either hot or cold, is much like dishwater.
