Notes on negative index '6' - Folio 10. 'Tuna'. [KC 8/9/2006]
Other Information - Dates: This was possibly taken in c.1948. There is a group of 4 images with the same contact print batch number but with a couple of inconsistencies between them - namely that some don’t have a paper brand stamp, that one has been printed out as a 6x4.5 image and the brand stamps appear slightly different where they can be seen and so the dating of this image is somewhat conjectural. However, some of the prints have '1948' written by hand on the back [MS 19/12/2005]
Other Information - Dates: This is one of a group of 25 images for which contact prints were made using the same printing out paper although with slighty different tonal qualities as some are very sepia toned. However, there is a very limited number of images in the collection printed out on this type of paper. One of the images in this group is from Samye and Richardson states that he photographed and copied this particular inscription pillar in 1949 [ A Corpus of Early Tibetan Inscriptions , Royal Asiatic Society: James G. Forlong Series, No. XXIX, p.26]. This suggests that the images may have been taken around that time [MS 17/12/2005]
