Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of Bukkur and Rohree (Rohri), Sind, part of the 'Crofton Collection: Topographical and architectural views mostly in India', taken by an unknown photographer in the 1860s. This photograph is taken from Sukkur, an ancient capital of Sind located on the west bank of the Indus River. Rohri can be viewed in the centre, beyond Sukkur, on the east bank of the river. It is believed that Rohri was originally founded in the neolithic period. Bukker is to the south, right of Rohri in this photograph, and is another island town of historical importance. The Indus River is the principal river of Pakistan and connects these three towns together. It flows southwest from the Himalayas to the Arabian Sea.
