Indian Photographers I: Lala Deen Dayal

I have started this series, called Indian Photographers to throw some light on the works of great Indian photographers.

Deen Dayal was born in Sardhana, Uttar Pradesh. In 1868, Deen Dayal founded his studio Lala Deen Dayal & Sons, and was subsequently commissioned to photograph various temples and palaces of India. He established studios in Secunderabad, Bombay, and Indore in the 1870s. He covered the tour of the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1875, and travelled with Sir Lepel Griffin through Bundelkhand in 1880s.

Some of his old photographs that I like:
