Studio portrait of the Nimbalkar of Satara (a Maratha), taken at Mumbai by Hurrichund Chintamon c. 1867, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. This photograph was exhibited at the Paris Exhibition of 1867. A Maratha was a member of the princely and military class of the former Hindu kingdom of Maharashtra in central India (now the modern state of Maharashtra). Hurrichund Chintamon began one of the first photographic firms in Bombay. He also made a notable contribution to 'The People of India' (published in eight volumes between 1868 and 1875 by the India Museum, London), a compilation of photographs on the tribes, races and castes of India, commissioned by the Government of India.
