This photograph was recently shared showing a Lincoln/Ford (?) of Gustav Hermann Krumbiegel, probably from his time in Bangalore?

In the picture below, " Dhani Bai" can be seen dancing ,celebrating the return of Ms. Lutter, after receiving her Padma Shri, (which she is wearing on her dress)

Ms. Lutter was the founding principal of Maharani Gayatri Devi School, Jaipur (M.G.D), The partially seen car was her own car which she used to move around the massive school property.

Posted in a facebook group- Royal Enfield Cast Iron Connoisseurs.

What looks like a dealership of Madras Motors, makers of the Royal Enfield in India.

The cars are all identifiable but what about the bus?

I believe it is a Sizaire & Naudin Type D, based on the script. Someone with better eye sight can confirm!

Thanks for the photos with the script. It is spelt both ways.

Similarly, Figoni & Falsaschi was also known as Figoni et Falashi.
