The Delhi & District XI in the field.
A fascinating album of photographs showing the first England cricket tour of India and the last for controversial 'Bodyline' captain Douglas Jardine has been discovered.
The rare black and white images show the England star leading the national side at the new cricket ground in Delhi that the colonial British had built in 1933 - the same year as the brutal Ashes series.
Jardine is featured in many photos as is the Viceroy of India. The album is being sold by auctioneers Bishop and Miller of Suffolk.
