Manual Catalogues - Caption in Chapman's hand-written list of negatives made whilst on the Mission to Lhasa, 1936-7 [See PRM Manuscripts Collection]: 'Norbhu Lingka main gate and guard'; PRM Manuscripts Collection: ‘List of Tibetan Prints and Negatives’ - Book 2: ‘7/2 - Tibetan guard outside main entrance to Norbhu Lingka - the summer palace built by the last (13th) Dalai Lamas [ sic ]’ [MS 14/08/2006]
Other Information - Related Images: Images prefixed with 'CPX' comprise a group of negatives containing images of boats near Dekyi Lingka crossing, Potala, Norbu Lingka main gate and stables, paintings, water prayer wheel, lake palace, ducks, mastiffs, monks washing clothes, Richardson and Dr Morgan. They seem to have been taken mainly on September 6th, although some of the early images may have been taken on September 4th - 5th 1936, when the Mission had two days of office activities. However, it also possible that they were taken on or around September 16th when a second visit was made to the Norbu Lingka [MS 21/03/2006]
