Other Information - Dates: This image was probably taken using a Zeiss Super Ikonta C using 6 x 9 negative size and there is a group of related images, the contact prints for which are printed out on Agfa Lupex paper and have distinctively decorative edges, made by using a special guillotine. These images all seem to relate to the period of the British Mission to Lhasa in 1936-37 under Sir Basil Gould or to 1938 at the latest [MS 22/12/2005] is written on the reverse of print
