Gold In Them Thar' Stalls

In Hyderabad, selling gold leaf paper is big business. We're not sure exactly its end use, but the paper seems to be similar to gold-leaf, with similar applications. It certainly is a popular item around the markets.

A typical stall and stacks of the end product.

The boys in the back room, pounding away at the gold. Careful! A scale: profit hanging in the balance.
