Lord and Lady Goschen in a Rolls Royce loaned by the Maharaja of Mysore as dozens of onlookers watch on, the picture should be from 1924-1931

Hi Karithikeya l,
That was a great picture.If I am not mistaken that picture was taken in front of Stephen's church in Ooty.The roof of that church was supposed to have been brought from Tipu's palace in Srirangapatnam,it was supposed to have been brought by elephants.
