A really different photo from the Monkey Morgan Collection today with the President of India, Jawaharlal Nehru and a colleague climbing down from an aircraft. The Krazy Kataloger has done it again and suggested that the colleague is none other than Eamonn DeValera but I've see the man in the flesh and he was not a person of colour so that is not right. The two were however very good friends and shared a mutual admiration. What can we find out about this image, where did it take place and what was the context?
