This coloured aquatint was made by Robert Havell and Son from plate 10 of JB Fraser's 'Views in the Himala Mountains'. It shows a detachment of William Fraser's 'Irregulars' crossing the River Tons - a tributary of the Yamuna - by means of a harness dangling from a rope. Crossing rivers in the Himalayas was always a hazardous undertaking as the waters from the mountains were often raging torrents.
