The Kashmir and Travancore elephants turning around the corner at the end of Chadni Chawk street (close to leaving the city)

This point had many photographers, since there are lots of shots from there. They are taken from a higher point, like a roof or a balcony. All I could find was a name of the building, the Footehpoorie Musjid, but no photographs. Eventually I will take pics during a future visit to Delhi
The elephants had already passed in front of the Main Hall, and were turning right towards Ahmad Pai.

A detail: check the lining troops on the right. They are a pipers band! They are among the future lining troops sets I want to add. On the other side of the street there was the whole band.
