||Fair condition, with some overall fading.
|Content and context|
285 x 103 mm. The photograph, taken in a panoramic camera, shows a general view of the famous banyan tree in the Botanical Gardens in Calcutta. It is accompanied by a sheet of notepaper on which is written 'from Sir Everard im Thurn 28/XI/12', but as the photograph was copied as print 510A in Album III of the Fisher Collection, dating from 1907-1908, and Sir Everard did not serve in India, the two items probabaly do not belong together.
This photograph is available on microfiche: South Asia, fiche number 71.
