Caption: (NY47-Dec.3)CLAIMS TO NAIL DOWN A RECORD--Murari Aditya holds up in Calcutta, India, his left hand on which are growing what he claims re the world's longest fingernails. He's been at it for the past seven years. A simple manicure takes up to 20 hours of painstaking work. He must constantly guard against accidentially making off the seven inch nail on his ring finger or the six and a half inch nail on his middle finger or any of the other three each of which is between five and six inches long.

The front and back of this photograph are pictured below.
