Manual Catalogues - Bell's List of Illustrations entry: "[No. of chapter] XVI. [Subject of Chapter] The Aristocracy. [Subject of Illustration] H107 (s) Group at Gyantse: Macdonald, Lady Doring, front, Cashie, Doring Techi, Trumpe Dzasa, Lhase Kusho, self, Kusho Doring, Palhese."
Other Information - Related Images: Bell does not distinguish between 1998.285.124 and 1998.285.125 and both can be referenced from the List of Illustrations by the entry for H.107. However, 1998.285.124 seems to be a re-photograph of a print taken from 1998.285.125, slightly cropped at both sides and zoomed in. The contact print for 1998.285.124 is slightly grainier.
