Strachey Collection of Indian Views

Photographers: Shepherd & Robertson, Samuel Bourne, a few unknown.
Contents: 127 prints Albumen prints
Provenance: Deposited on permanent loan by James Strachey, November 1964
Notes: Collection deposited along with Mss Eur F 127
Description: Collection of loose prints on original card mounts, with contemporary pencilled captions, from the collection of Sir Richard Strachey. Fuller captions from the Bourne & Shepherd catalogue have been added in square brackets where these supply fuller or precise information. The original collection apparently comprised a total of 130 prints, but three appear to have been mislaid. Three additional prints found with collection have been returned to Photo 45, from where they originally came. This collection appears to have been re-arranged and re-numbered at least twice in the past. Since almost all the prints (with the exception of 8 photographs) are numbered views from the Bourne & Shepherd catalogue, this order has been adopted for the catalogue and for future reference.

This collection forms an important and extensive set of views of northern India and Pakistan by Shepherd & Robertson (c.1862) and Samuel Bourne (1863-c.66), and includes topographical and architectural studies from Agra, Delhi, Lucknow, Simla, Srinagar (and Kashmir generally), Naini Tal and Lahore. There are also many views recording Bourne's photographic expeditions in the Himalayas in 1864 and 1866.
