The nose was reconstructed one year later by a man of the brick maker caste near Poonah. The operation was not uncommon in India and had been practised from time immemorial. A thin plate of wax is fitted to the stump of the nose so as to make a nose of good appearance. It is then flattened and laid on the forehead where a line is drawn around it. The forehead flap is cut with a razor, turned down and inserted into an incision to form the nose. The connecting slip of skin is divided about the 25th day.BRITISH PERIODPoona Hunt Stakes 1877 Horses Polo Pony Race Old Print1st Battalion Worcestershire RegimentalFootball Team at Poona 1900'sBritish memsahib in India 'A Sketch in the suburbs of the City of Poona.
