These are images of the peoples of South Asia of around 1899 and earlier, especially from the southern parts of the subcontinent.

These images have been collected mainly from books like

Malabar (Manual),

Native Life in Travancore,

Travancore State Manual,

Castes and tribes of Southern India,

Omen and superstitions of Southern India and such other books.

A few of the images were collected from online sources.

It is understood that all these images are in the public domain.
