BHARATPUR. A very good cabinet card by Bourne & Shepherd, around 1877


BHARATPUR. H. H. Sir Jaswant Singh, Maharaja of Bharatpur [1853-1893]. an excellent, very clean cabinet card by Bourne & Shepherd. The young ruler of this important 15 gun salute state is shown in a confident half length pose, seated. The portrait came to us with a large group of portraits of rulers taken by this distnguished photography firm. mainly around the time of the 1877 Imperial Assemblage when so many of them were assembled in Delhi. It was also the year in which Jaswant Singh was made a G.C.S.I.       jul18/2
