A landscape format album containing 47 images [each approximately 8x6ins and variously landscape and portrait in presentation] each pasted to a facing page only and mainly retaining tissue guards. Origtinal black cloth covered boards with the title and photographer's credit gilt blocked to the upper board, the black paper pages held by cords, wear at the extremities of the binding but the contents clean with only very minor damage ot one or two images. The visiting card of RAJAH OF PARLAKIMEDI with supersciption in ink "with my best complements" loosely inserted. The photographs show: general and detail views of the Palace , the Rajah waiting for and then greeting Sir George (as Governor of Madras), views of the town 'en fete', visits by Lady Stanley, a river trip hunting wildfowl with a grand shooting luncheon (20), the Governor's motor car, etc. Parlakimedi was a small state in the Ganjam district of Madras. At this time the Hon Sir George Stanley was Governor of Madras but a few months later he was acting Governor General of India (May-November 1934) while Lord Willingdon was on leave, after which he was made GCSI. He was a son of the 16th Earl of Derby and had been a regular soldier (RHA) and MP and minister before assuming his governorship of Madras; his wife, Lady Beatrix was daughter of the 3rd Marquess of Headfort. The images of the hunting party are attractive and include several ladies taking an active part. Although the Rajah would have been greatly honoured by this visit it is unlikely that very many copies of this album were made and that far fewer survive. Size: 13.5 x 10 Inches Overall.
