The R-R in the last photo is the Viceregal Phantom I, Chassis 34FH. The photo was taken during the riots of 1932 (from the album of a British soldier).

Incidentally, the Governor of Bombay had the next chassis, 35FH (later registered BMW-9319).

Thanks Karl. I think this is a John Fasal photo.

Is anything known about the original colour ?

Though not Maharaja cars, still posting here.

Picture from the Bagrian Fort/residential block.

Quote:
Situated on the Malerkotla-Nabha road, Bagrian lies about 18 km southeast of Malerkotla. Though now in Malerkotla Tehsil, it was not a part of the Malerkotla Princely State but was ruled by the British Colonial authorities. There is a fort at Bagrian, which was built by Bhai Guddar Singh who reportedly moved there in 1765. The village had been given to him by Adina Beg the Governor of Jalandhar city at the time, in appreciation of Bhai Guddar Singh's piety
