Street scene, Baylay's clock Tower, [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 at Kota, Rajasthan, taken by P.A. Herzog and P. Higgins in 1902. This view in the city records a perspective down a busy street lined with open-fronted shops, towards a clock tower in the distance. The houses have projecting enclosed balconies or jarokhas, deep cornices, and awnings at the shop entrances casting heavy shade. The Anglo-Indian clock tower is topped with a chattri dome.
