Photographs Album details for shelfmark Photo 19/2

Grose Collection: Views in the Shan States.

Photographers: Frank Samuel Grose
Contents: 166 prints 75x105mm (average) Gelatine silver prints (sepia)
Provenance: Presented by the executors of F.S. Grose through the offices of Sir John Clague, 9 September 1942. Don 649.
Description: Brown cloth post-bound 'Luxor' photograph album measuring 265x300mm, with title 'Photographs' stamped in gold on front cover. Prints are mounted three or four to a page, with reference code identifying negative number. This reference code consists of a letter of the alphabet for each volume of negatives, and a number for each negative within the volumes. Captions for each photograph can be found both with the list in each negative album, and in two notebooks which duplicate this information.
The collection also contained the original nitrate negatives: these have been duplicated onto safety film and the originals destroyed. The original arrangement of twenty books of negatives (coded A-T) has been broken up into a more convenient system which follows and corresponds with the new numbering of the albums themselves: thus the negative number for Photo 19/1 (50) is now ON 19/1 (50) (where ON stands for Original Negative).

A broad and very selective breakdown of the contents includes the following subjects: Marus at Ho-paw (print 2); Muhso or Lahu woman (print 3); Marus gathering firewood (prints 4-5); Ho-paw village (print 6); Yaos at Kengkum (prints 7-8); camp at Mong Kwan (prints 9-11); Lihsaws (prints 12, 15-16); Strand Road, Rangoon (prints 17-19); Padaung group (print 20); tribal groups (Gaungtos, Brés, Padaungs) gathered at Mandalay for durbar visit of the Viceroy, also showing the ceremonial pavilion (prints 20-27); Ho Mong Palé girls, Hpa Myin village (prints 29-31); Shan pakondan (pedlar), with pet parrots (print 35); Lahu girls (print 36); Kaws (prints 37-8); views on the Salween at Takaw (prints 39-42); Ho-Pong in 1917 (prints 44-6); Kaw women at Nam Ti (print 49); Views at Mong Yu (prints 50-2); Umkengwi Wat and village (prints 56-8); Kachins (prints 61-2); Was (print 66-8); Ens (prints 72-3); Chinese and Shans at Pang Wo (print 74); Kaws at Panghok (prints 75-9); Taping River (prints 82-3); Hkun women (prints 84-5); Lahus at Keng Tung Bazaar (print 87); Nampan Bazaar and boat scenes (prints 89-92); Intha leg rowers (prints 93-6); Man Pang Ferry, Ko-Kang (prints 101-2); Namhsan village (prints 104-5); visit of Lieut-Governor Sir Spencer Harcourt Butler to Loi-pao (prints 101-10); car crossing Teng on ferry, Laihka (print 111); Nam Lawng temporary bridge (print 114); Kachin girls (print 115); Wa group (print 116); opium poppy field (print 117); Ta Man Hsum (print 119); camp at Mong Kao (print 121); Baby Day at Mong Yai, 21 March 1927 (print 124); Steamer Ghat, Iigyaing (print 130); pagoda, Iigyaing (print 131); Katha (prints 132-3); Shwegu (print 134); floods at Bhamo (prints 135-45); Bhamo House (print 146); Mong Yawng Plain from Tat Hsawin Yawng (print 147); eastern entrance to Tat Hsawin Yawng (print 148); Wan Tawng Bridge (print 150); tribal groups at Mandalay for Viceroy's visit (prints 155-8); Kaws on the road (prints 161-2); Nampan Bazaar (print 163); Nampan Pagoda (print 164).
