I think this picture was shared earlier somewhere - the car is the 1903 Humberette of the Mallya collection.

Greetings,

A pictorial book is being compiled on the vintage & classic automobiles of the Nizams and their Princes, due for release around Cartier event in Feb 2017, coninciding with the Golden Jubilee of the present Nizam Mukarram Jah's coronation in 1967.

May I request for kind support in the form of information, inputs, photos and records of all things Hyderabad (automobile related - like photos, invoices, period adverts etc). You can share via email or mobile.

Pls PM to assist.

Thanks
