Other Information - Dates

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]
