Dear Members,

One Mr. Christopher Penn from England has been trying to trace his great-grandfather's life and work in Ooty. His grand'pa's name was Albert Watson and he lived in the late 19th/early 20th century in Ooty at Cranley cottage near the present-day Nilgiris library. He was a photographer who devoted his time to clicking pictures of the Badagas and Todas.

If any of you have any information or details passed down from your grandparents on the above, kindly mail in, so that the information can be passed on to him.

Also, if anyone can share any unique details/ experinces of Ooty, it would be very good.

Looking forward to your response

Hi Arjun,

You can find details about Ooty and its History in the book "History of Ootacamund" by Fredrick Price which was first published in the year 1907. That is a nice book and you can find the unique details there as it was written by an Englishman who stayed in Ooty during those days....
