These photos were supplied by Gautam Sen, editor of the Indian magazine Auto India, through Wasif Ahmed. Mr. Sen has just released a new book, "A Fabulous Destiny," chronicling the history of the Rolls-Royce 17 EX prototype.

The cars pictured were owned by the Mitter family of Calcutta. The Duesenbergs shown are Weymann Saloon J-196 / 2200 and Murphy Convertible Sedan J-202 / 2222. Neither car survives intact, although parts of J-202 / 2222 remain in various locations. Also shown are two S-Class Mercedes and what appear to be two Rolls-Royce...altogether, not a bad stable.

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
