This is plate 2 from AE Scott's 'Simla Scenes'. In the 19th century, Annandale was favoured by the British because it ideally suited the popular Victorian taste for the romantic pastoral. Situated among hills heavily forested with pines, firs and cedars, it became a venue for British leisure activities. The glade provided the perfect backdrop for picnic luncheons, lovers' rendezvous and 'fetes champetres', in which ladies and gentlemen held archery competitions, played battledore and shuttlecock, and danced in the cool evening to fiddle music.
