This is plate 3 from AE Scott's 'Simla Scenes'. Simla is a group of hills linked by long ridges. The best view of Simla is from the top of the hill known as Jakko, which offers a grand panorama of the Himalayas. It is also famous for its temple to the Hindu god Hanuman. The Simla Bazaar is a vibrant spot, comprising a maze of shacks and stalls. The English writer Rudyard Kipling wrote of the bazaar in his novel 'Kim': "A man who knows his way there can defy all the police of India's summer capital, so cunningly does verandah communicate with verandah, alley-way with alley-way, and bolt-hole with bolt-hole".
