This photograph of the Bihar museum was taken in the 1870s. Although it was credited to 'Dr Simpson', their is a strong possibility that it was taken by Joseph David Beglar. The photograph is part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections and shows the museum buildings across a pool with a ghat positioned in front. A note by Bloch reads, "The sculptures photographed while exhibited in the Bihar Museum were collected from various places in Bihar, and are now in the Indian Museum. A paper by Mr Broadley, dealing with this collection, was published in Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, vol. XLI, part I, 1872, pp. 209-311".
