Notes on print/mount - 'Pargo Kaling Lhasa' has been written in blue ink and '13' has been written in blue-black ink. This slide seems to have been used as slide 13 in the lecture 'A Year in Lhasa', which was first presented at the Royal Geographical Society on 3rd December 1923. The text, with a lesser number of images, was later published in The Geographical Journal of February 1924. Bell may also have presented this lecture on other occasions about which we have no information at present. [MS 7/9/2004]
Other Information - Setting: This road also acts as a processional route during Sertreng Ceremony etc. See Bell's images of Sertreng procession [MS 9/6/2004]
