Catalogue Note

A fine album of silverprints documenting Lord and Lady Curzon's visit to Hyderabad Deccan, formerly an Indian princely state, located in the south-central region of India.  Curzon, Viceroy of India (1899 to 1905), created the territory of Eastern Bengal and Assam. His first wife, Mary Victoria Curzon, Vicereine of India, held the highest official title in history of any American woman up to her time. The album contains remarkably candid images of the Viceroy and Vicereine's crossing of the Lai Nullah riverbed, the couple travelling on shikar elephants, and a luncheon at the Pakhal Lake.
