The Photographic Evidence of the Vedic Influence Found in the Red Fort and Other Buildings in Delhi and India, as well as in Drawings and Art from Elsewhere in the World

As previously explained, these photos that were discovered are black and white and found in a simple album in India. Except for old age and some water damage on some of them (creating white spots in areas), most are still in relatively good condition. They all have the stamp on the back which states, "Archaeology Survey of India," verifying their authenticity. Each photograph was accompanied by a typed caption taped in the album near the photo, explaining the subject of the photo and what it means. The captions accompany the photos on the following pages just as they were written in the album, so the style of English and the explanations are kept the same. They are obviously written from an Indian perspective, but provide most interesting insights into what is shown. Whatever I may say about the photos are displayed in brackets [ ]. Otherwise, I let the photos and the captions speak for themselves, as they were found. Click on the photo number for access.
