Photograph of Buddhist sculptures from Mir Jan, Peshawar district, taken by Henry Cole in c. 1883. This collection of fragments shown boxed for transportation are sculpture slabs or urdhvapattas (depicting scenes from the life of the Buddha). According to Bloch, the sculptures are 'said to be now in Bombay'. The photograph was taken as part of the Archaeological Survey of India, although the attribution to Cole is probably incorrect.
