A good example of the original album with printed list of principal events on the front pastedown. The 32 card pages have photographs to each side, some large individual photographs, others with two smaller photographs to a page. These are all in excellent clean condition although the old tissue guards between the pages are often crumpled and defective. The upper board has the title and the Maharaja of Gwalior’s coat of arms stamped in gold leaf, the rear board is rather marked.

Large photos inlcude: elephant processions, marching troops, views of the palace, portraits. The Maharaja was marrying a Princess of Nepal.  jan11/2
