These are the camels mentioned first on the list. This image is within the last batch of photographs that I bought from the British library. It is very neat, and many things can be seen at the back (although I haven't work on identifying those yet)

These picture is captioned as Charkhari (or Charkhhari), although I don't have any proof of that yet.

Charkhari is a state with many retinues and elephants. Very interesting state. If you check on the identifying of the Main Procession elephants on previous posts, you'll see that the state elephant is beautiful. So thinking of it...
