Postcard with the caption Faizpur Congress, 31 December 1936, signed 'Nanda.' Caption also mentiones Rani Jhansi Durwaza. Landscape orientation. Drawn with blue lines, there are two towers probably made of bamboo, which serve as a gate to the Congress meeting. They have pointed tops and flags above. From the quickly drawn lines we get a sense of bustling activity.
