Item number: 75212120

Genre: Photograph

Photograph of a river scene, with a European woman walking on the riverbank on the left, in the Hazara District, Northwest Frontier Province, Pakistan, taken by an unknown photographer in the 1860s. The Imperial Gazeteer of India described the Hazara District as '...picturesque and ever-changing. Distant snowy ranges to the north; the higher mountains of Hazara, clothed with pines, oaks, and other forest trees, the lower ranges covered with grass and brushwood; cultivation appearing on every available spot, from the small terraces cut with great labour in the hill-sides to the rich irrigation of the Haripur and Pahkli plains; water in every form, from the swift torrents of the Kunhar and Jhelum and the strong deep stream of the Indus, to the silent lakes of the Kagan valley - all these suggest Kashmir and offer a vivid contrast to the arid plains of Northern India.'
