Other Information

Notes on print/mount - This is the central image in a group of three that have been stuck on a piece of card to make a panoramic view. The caption 'Chomolhari on right view from Tuna'. Each image has the relevant reference 'B.13', 'B.14' and 'B.15' on the back so that they can be identified [MS 10/03/2006]

Manual Catalogues - Caption in Chapman's hand-written list of negatives made whilst on the Mission to Lhasa, 1936 [See PRM Manuscripts Collection]: '1/2 Whole facade ' [MS 10/03/2006]

Other Information - Dates


Other Information - Dates: The images prefixed with a simple 'B.' seem all to have been taken at the end of the Mission's stay in Lhasa as some are clearly identifiable as relating to the Tsarong family's 'At Home Ceremony', which took place on February 14th. It seems likely, therefore, that this photograph was taken on the return journey from Lhasa in February 1937 [MS 10/03/2006]
