Just got my copy of this wonderfull book, direct from France, thanks a million to Gautam Sen for sending it to me.

Looks superb, yet to read it but the pictures are fantastic and the print and format is excellent

Yep I too got mine. Was your book autographed too by Gautam in the inner page? No wonder it took so long all the way from France

I just borrowed the book from Bumpu "Sir-Car" on penalty of not working on my car if i didn't return it.

What a Great Read, filled with so much information about the RR-17EX, Rolls-Royce and the magic of India during it's Hey Day plus all the fabulous photographs!

The story of the Mitter family's vacation trip to Hazaribagh was so absolutely captivating that I plan on retracing their steps and seeing what is left of all the historical sites along the way when we return to Calcutta in October.

Anyone want to join my wife and I?

Amazing Pics , Got my Copy of the book a while back , and have spent a long time just looking at the old period pics. I just would have hoped that we could have saved some of the priceless cars that the Mitters owned. I will have old period pics of Loudon street as we used to live there till about 10 years back and my great grandfather had built the house . Let me look them up and see if i can find any cars in them .

The chowrangee road picture is especially poignant as we own the building across the road from the present LIC/Big Bazaar building , and my father recollected some amazing times gone by after looking at it.

Did you retrace the steps? If so, a travelogue will be inspirational.
