    The picture called “Der Raje von travencore” is really the Maharaja of Cochin. The poor cheruman did not know the diff between Travancore and Cochin!!!

      Thanks for your comments, Sankara! I wrote it here just as my grandfather had labeled the photos in his photo album, and there are a few mistakes here and there. Thanks for pointing this one out!
