Other Information - Dates

Other Information - Dates: The date is derived from Richardson’s negative album No.4, the cover of which is marked with ‘Lhobrag 1950’. Also includes some images taken on other trips during this year (eg: Talung/Reting). The batch development numbers 608-615 run sequentially and the images seem all to have been developed at the same time, and probably, therefore, were taken in or around this date. [MS 19/12/2005]
