Notes on print/mount - Two contact prints made from this negative are contained in A. J. Hopkinson's negative case with the negative. The first print appears to have been removed from an album, as there are traces of black mounting paper around the edges of the print as if it has been taken out after previously being glued in place. A partially decipherable caption has been written on the back in pencil: "Chumbi [?] (Here the Maharajas of Sikkim used to live) Prayer (mani wall) and woman carrying grass in foreground ". The number 8 has been written on the front top right corner in pencil. The second print has the caption 'A winter scene in Chumbi Village (2 miles from Yatung)' written on the back in pencil [MS 26/06/2006]
