Painting No - 01

Chamberlian Road off-Gowalmandi developed into a mix of residential and commercial activity. It was famous for shops dealing in vegetable and flowers seeds and home gardening aids. Kisan & Co. founded by Ch. Rehmat Khan Tarrar in 1930’s was leading in the trade in the sub-Continent. He was father of famous writer Mustansar Hussain Tarrar. The whole bazaar had over – hanging array of wooden projections comprising of balconies covered with slanting tin roofs over running wooden multi-foiled arcades and gabled formation in the central portions. Wood used to be cheaper due to a large forest cover hence widely used to combat harsh summers. This being perishable has disappeared due to decay. Also, older houses are increasingly being pulled down to make way for markets with smaller shops.  The wooden balconies seen in the painting therefore no longer exist.
