A bit of background: 'The days of the Viceroys' means something more specific here - the time in the history of India when it was governed by a succession of Viceroys. (Queen Victoria - who is hailed on coins with the abbreviation 'Ind. Imp.'['Empress of India'] never actually went there.)
Please explain the highlighted ones.
