Khols [Kols]. 68
Photographer: Bourne and Shepherd
Medium: Photographic print
This photograph dates to the 1890s. It shows a group portrait of thirteen Khol men and youths posed with bows and arrows in the open, probably photographed in modern-day Bihar. The photograph is unsigned, but the Bourne & Shepherd catalogue number 3038 can just be made out on the print. It forms part of an album entitled 'Portraits of Bengal types, trades and castes'.
