Ninth Pair of Elephants: Alwar - Dewas Senior
Both elephants marching in front of the Jumma Masjid. This image was among the first bunch of copies that I bought from the British Library. I made a mistake in the kind of copies I should have ordered. By those times, most of my research was on paper, so I ordered the copies on paper, that is printed copies. Three months later I had found out that it took me ages to go through all my papers, documents, newspaper cuts and photographs. It was so much faster if I had everything in my PC. So I digitalized everything. My second batch of copies was ordered in digital format. What a difference. I ended ordering the first ones again, digital this time.
Here, the painting of the maharaja of Dewas Senior is not from 1903. He was 14 years old when he was the Durbar. He was sitting beside a British officer, as you will see in the following photos.
The elephants again, along the south side of the Jumma.
Here, passing in front of the Clock Tower and the Main Hall. The picture of the Maharaja of Alwar on the side, was taken a few days later, during the Retainers Review, at the Amphitheatre.
A detail of both elephants
Here is the amazing detail that my digital copies have. These copies are precious treasures to me.
