Photograph from the Curzon Collection: 'Vist of His Excellency the Viceroy. Kotah, November, 1902' of launches proceeding up the Chambal river, at Kota, Rajasthan, taken by P.A. Herzog and P. Higgins in November 1902. The Chambal is Rajasthan’s largest river and at Kota it flows in a deep, wide stream with a slow current between overhanging cliffs and rocks rising sheer out of the water.
