Swayambhunath Hill c1971 - from a postcard sent by Hetty MacLise, who wrote:
"both the pics are post cards!!! i have no idea who took them and of course they are from way back. 1971 perhaps. yes the valley was green , verdant and clear, and these two pics show that. in baudhanath the paddies went right up to the kora, and swayambhunath the same. one could saunter to town through the fields. just 13 taxis painted with tiger stripes. everyone saving up to buy the bicycle."
