|Brief Description:||Waxed paper negative of a colonial bungalow in India, as in the companion 11945 but from a greater distance and entirely out of focus.|
The companion is inscribed '1847 double', but this seems too early to be a date, the photographer was in India in the 1860s..
|Provenance:||Presented by Lieutenant-Colonel A. G. Shortt in 1941. Taken by his father Major-General Alexander Young Shortt when he was Political Resident (representative of the British Government) in the native state of Palanpur, India, about 1860-70.|
