Photograph of the H.E. Tondaiman Rajah and his ministers, part of the 'Photographic Views of Poodoocottah' (Madras, 1858) collection, taken by Linnaeus Tripe in 1858. In 1855, Tripe was commissioned to take photographs for the British East India Company and the Madras Presidency which resulted in six albums, one of which concentrated on Pudukottai and is seen here. Now in the modern state of Tamil Nadu, Pudukottai was once a princely state under the Tondaiman Rajas. This photograph was taken in the Durbar hall of the Pudukottai Palace. A group of ministers stand around Ramchandra Tondiman, the Raja of Pudukkottai, as he is seated at a table signing a document.
