Delhi Durbar 1911. An original two part panorama of the scene.
Delhi 1911. An original two part photographic panorama of the scene in the amphitheatre with the King and Queen in the central shamiana. The visible measurement is 23 x 9½ ins and the panorama is mounted on old card and still within a window mount, ideal for framing again, overall size 28 x 15 ins. It is titled on the mount CORONATION DURBAR DELHI DEC. 1911. This is not one of the fold out panoramas taken from a book of the period and we are not entirely sure of the precise day the image was taken. It gives a splendid impression of the vast number of troops involved and is taken from stand Z which has a lot of Indian Army Officers towards the front. The photographs are in excellent condition although, as often is the case, the two do not meet with total precision. jul25/2 SOLD 28th July 2022
