About Durbar

Commemorate the moment King George V visited the Delhi Durbar for his coronation in 1911 with images and postcards. This spectacular historical moment saw King George V's reign as the King Emperor begin, while simultaneously transferring the ownership of Calcutta from the British to the Indians. Durbar images range from rare still photographs taken of the location, to hand-painted memorials of the coronation day. As one of the turning points in Britain and India's relationship, it signifies one of the moments that Britain's colonial rule began to dwindle in Asia. Durbar images are available through eBay in new and used condition. Check out top sellers for vintage and rare items. Some items come with free postage.
