FROM THE PLAINS OF MADRAS TO THE SNOWS OF KASHMIR 569 Photograph by Fred Bremner A VAULTED STREET IN SHIKARPUR This city was formerly one of the most important trade depots on the great road over the Bolan Pass to Baluchistan, Kandahar, and central Asia. Piece goods, silk, ivory, cochineal. spices, coconuts, drugs, indigo, dyes, asafetida, and gums still pass through its portals, though the North-Western Railway has done much to rob it of its former prestige. Shikarpur has the unenviable reputation of being one of the three hottest places in India; hence its peculiar roofed market street.
