Photograph of a view of the Deolali cantonment near Nasik.This photograph was taken by an unknown photographer in the 1870s and is part of the collection of Sir Richard Carnac Temple. The cantonment was established by the British in the early 1860s near to Nasik and served as a clearing centre for European troops in both World Wars. A military psychiatric hospital was founded here and it is thought that the expression 'to go doolally' came about as a corruption of the name Deolali.
