Reference numberWH2/109
TitleSt Ives Bazaar Group
DescriptionThis may be the bazaar held in the Corn Exchange, St Ives, in 1904 in aid of funds for the extension of the Literary Institute, and which was known as "The Delhi Durbar". It was attended by the Mayor, Mr. Brownlow, and an important guest named "The Maharajah Kantellum", dressed in Indian garb. In this image the hall has been hung with painted sheets simulating castle walls, and there appears to be a painted image of an elephant on the sheet at the end of the hall. See also WH2/146 and WH2/246
This image was originally catalogued as possibly the St Ives Free Church bazaar , which Frederick Hinde photographed in 1910, but comparing the decorations on the walls with another image of "The Delhi Durbar" (WH2/146), it would appear that WH2/109 is a photograph of the same event
