Manual Catalogues - [Caption in A. J. Hopkinson's negative album 'Tibet D']: 'Agency Ho. [House] Yatung' [MS 28/04/2006]
Other Information - Setting: A. J. Hopkinson seems to have preferred living in Yatung to Gyantse because he found the accommodation and the gardens much more pleasant in Yatung [A. J. Hopkinson Archive, OIOC British Library, Mss Eur D998/54, Journal Letters from Gyantse and Various Camps, 1927-28, commencing March 1st 1927, pages 2-3] [MS 29/07/2006]
Other Information - Dates: Hopkinson returned to Yatung from Gyantse in July 1927 and remained until September. This image has clearly been taken consecutively with those at Samada dated July 19th 1927 because the cut edges of the negative frames, which are quite irregular, match perfectly. Thus this photograph was taken shortly upon arrival back in Yatung at this time [MS 29/07/2006]
