Portrait of the son of H.H. Chunnasee Rajoonath Pant by Bourne and Shepherd in the late 1860s, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. The youth in this photograph is holding a sword, leaning a against a banister rail beside a sculptural ornament of a horse and archer. The photographic firm Bourne and Shepherd began in Simla in the 1860s before branches were established in Calcutta and Bombay. Simla was the most important of the hill-stations in both social and political terms, and was therefore a strategic place to work as a photographer.
