Notes on the Geography of Northern India: Shimla Houses: Photo 1
Here's one, called Chapslee. Buck writes (p. 31) that "it became the property of the late Sir Arthur Ker, the well-known manager of the Alliance Bank of Simla, who bought it from Mr. Eliot in 1896, and who improved it beyond all recognition. In the opinion of many good judges 'Chapslee' is now surpassed by no other Simla residence in arrangement and general advantages." The Raja of Kapurthala bought the house after Ker's death, and it is still in his family.
