    Hi Guys,

    As you probably imagine I'm searching for 1903 Durbar photos constantly. I came across an excitingly interesting photo on ebay today. It's the Nabha elephant, at the Nabha Camp, with a few differences on the ornaments he wore during the Main Procession, but the state elephant at last.

    I wanted you to see the photo in its extreme detail. This is the kind of photo that you can find if you search carefully.
    It is a silver gelatin photograph (I imagine that it refers to the negative process), 8 x 5,75 inches.

    The limitations of the forum file sizes don't allow me to upload it with a good definition. You should go to the seller's link and check the detail with the enlargement of the magnifying glass:

    The chandeliers attached to the tusks, the exquisite painting of the face and the lovely bird on the side of the back seat of the howda, to name a few details worth noting. A bit pricy for my budget but it's worth every penny. If you can afford it don't hesitate, it's still not sold. By the way, it's my birthday next week. If you have not thought of a present yet, here's the best idea I'd be even happy with only a good scan.

    Enjoy!

    Ana
