Scadden Collection: Prince of Wales' Tour of India 1875-76.

Photographers: W. Stretton, Bourne and Shepherd, Samuel Bourne, W.L.H. Skeen and Co and others unknown.
Contents: 73 prints 90x57mm to 201x463mm Albumen prints
Provenance: Unknown provenance.
Subjects: royal tours - named vessels - 'Serapis' - British colonial architecture
Description: Former album broken up into loose mounted prints, apparently compiled by T.W. Scadden. A printed titled page (by De La Rue and Co, London) with an elaborate hand-painted design reads: 'Photographic Album'. The album has in the past suffered extensive damage from damp and many of the prints are in poor physical condition. The loose album pages have now been split and mounted in individual polyester sleeves. The photographs combine views taken at the time of the Prince of Wales' visit to India and Ceylon with earlier topographical views. Some prints are reproduced in Bourne and Shepherd's 'Royal Photographic Album of scenes and personages connected with the progress of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales through Bengal, the North West Provinces, the Punjab and Nepal, Calcutta 1876' (see OIOC Photo 992/1 ).
