Delhi Durbar, 1903. A photographic portrait from Deen Dayal studios of Captain Walker, Camel Corps


Original vintage photograph, 8 ins x 5.7ins, mounted on half a card album leaf, numbered in the negative 127, printed letterpress title on mounted label beneath the image An officer of the Camel Corps (Captain Walker), a very clear image with minimal fading. This is a very strong image of Capt Walker mounted on his camel: he wears field service dress with khaki helmet and appears to be equipped for exercise, with sword, rifle, water carriers, etc. An unusual image taken during the demonstration manoeuvres held during the Durbar period. The reverse of the card has a similarly sized view No 113. MANOEUVRES. Gun Coming into Action in an awkward Position . This leaf has been removed from a disbound album of Durbar photgraphs put together by Deen Dayal’s studios. The card is chipped at the top corners but leaving wide enough margins for a modern window mount.  SOLD 18th May 2019
