These illustrations by the Maharashtran painter Mahadev Vishwanath Dhurandhar (1867-1944) are from Otto Rothfield's book Women of India, published in Mumbai (Bombay) by D. B. Taraporevala in 1920.

Some of these drawings date to the early 1900s. There is evidence for a 1908 version of the book. Very similar illustrations of the mill hand and fisher wife appeared in By-Ways of Bombay, by S.M. Edwardes (1912).
