Title: Estate a Simla : cenni sulla capitale estiva del Raj
Authors: Cattaneo, Silvana
Issue Date: 1997
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: Spending the hot weather months in one of the numerous hillstatios of British India away from the burning plains was already an established custom at the end of 1830s. The essay traces the progress of Simla, on the lower slopes of the Himalaya, from mountain village where a fakir gave fresh water to travellers to virtually capital of the Raj starting from 1863. It deals with the kind of town Simla was and the life the English led there, through the testimony of letters and diaries of numerous residents of the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
