Monarch of the Milk Crates

Man with Milkcrates

The colourful milk crates and the (im)posing man made an inviting photo op on Coral Merchant Street Mannady during the Chennai Photowalk.

My interest, however, was more on the heavy carved door and doorframe behind.

The man said that he has been living there for the last 10 years but the house must be at least 70 years old. I would reckon that the house must be much older.

Unfortunately, I could not get a good picture of the door due to various constraints.

The Madras University Senate House was built around 1875. This Indo -Saracenic structure was designed by Robert Chisholm.

The hall was closed to the public but was opened as a venue of Chennai Photo Biennale.
