Photograph taken by J. Jackson in 1868 of the Protestant Burial Ground in Mandalay, part of an album of 43 views of Burma (Myanmar) from the Sladen Collection. The tomb dominating the foreground is protected from the elements by an open-sided Burmese-style wooden pavilion and is that of Sophia Catharine Sladen (d.1865). She was the wife of Colonel Sir Edward Bosc Sladen (1827-1890), who was Agent to the Chief Commissioner at Mandalay from 1866. During the Third Anglo-Burmese War in 1885 he accompanied the British military force against the last king of the Burmese Konbaung dynasty, Thibaw, which resulted in the king’s exile and the annexation of Mandalay. This image is from his collection.
