Elephant training, circa 1900


A small panoramic photograph, 6¼ x 2½ ins, shows two elephants with mahouts roped to a young elephant which they appear to be training in some way while onlookers on two other large elephants are a little distance away. The image probably dates from around 1900, perhaps a little earlier. Cameras taking this size of photograph were certainly used at the 1903 Durbar. nov27/1
