Durbar procession: The 5-mile-long royal procession before the Durbar touched Red Fort, Jama Masjid and Chandni Chowk before reaching Kingsway Camp. King George V was supposed to ride a bedecked elephant but he refused and rode a horse. Delhiites missed the slightly short George V in his marshal uniform. The King later complained of a ‘chilly reception’. Photos courtesy: New Delhi: Making of A Capital, Roli Books
