The Earl of Minto, Viceroy of India with the Lieutenant Governor of the United Provinces


A very good, richly toned original photograph showing the Viceroy, Lord Minto standing beside the Governor of the United Provinces’ camel carriage, image size 8 x 6ins [20cm x 15cm], mounted on an old card album leaf, pencil annotation in a contemporary hand, excellent clean condition and the card sound. A relatively informal view of the Viceroy during the large Durbar held at Agra in 1907 for the occasion of the meeting with the Amir of Afghanistan, The Viceroy is wearing riding gear and ladies and a young boy are in the distinctive open coach drawn by six camels, each with a uniformed rider. The reverse of the card has another image from Agra of a military review with a British infantry regiment being viewed by crowds some of whom are standing in three early open topped motor cars.
