    They look like composite images. Probable shoot with an 8x10 or larger view camera. The scene was set up and a series of images where taken. Most likely by shifting the back relative to the lens. The tip that it might be composite is in the skies. The images are then combined later in the printing.

    I would imagine each picture had 100+ man hours in it, not including the printing. First would be the pre-production which could easily have been the longest part of the process. Then setting up for each part of the shot. My guess is 3 for each panorama. If you look at them you can almost see the 3 individual shots. The zoo one is the most telling. Although some of the subjects are very dated and obviously they advertise photography they are wonderful!

    Anything is possible in India with the right amount of money.

    I would have been impressed if they had a shot of the inside.

    I don't think they are composite panoramas. I bet they were shot as a single exposure with an 8x10 view camera. An 8x10 has plenty of resolution to allow you to crop that single frame into a panorama and still look great. Heck, in those days they had Kodachrome 25 in 8x10 sheets.
