Street scene, Patian Bazar, [Kota]
Photographer: Herzog and Higgins
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph from the Curzon Collection: 'Visit of His Excellency the Viceroy. Kotah, November, 1902' of a street scene in the Patian bazaar, at Kota, Rajasthan, taken by P.A. Herzog and P. Higgins in 1902. This view records a sharply-receding perspective down a street lined with open-fronted shops. The town houses are built with projecting enclosed balconies or jarokhas, and deep cornices and awnings at the shop entrances casting heavy shade. This view is one of several street scenes in Kota taken by Herzog and Higgins when they accompanied Lord Curzon on an official visit in November 1902.
