This is "Calico Mills, Ahmedabad" vintage Diwali Sale Special book type calendar of the year 1935 in my collection. Here calendar printed from 1935 November month to 1936 October month (Diwali Callendar year starting from November to next year october). Sharing this vintage Diwali Sale special calendar today on the auspicious Diwali festival.
Now people look after and thinking for nostalgic olden days. One example this new diwali sweets gift iron tin box printed with the images of vintage match box labels. Some of those traditions printed in the images are now very rarely seen even in rural parts also. Hence even this new diwali sweets tin box also have some nostalgic look. Sharing this tin which is in my collection now on the occasion of Diwali.
