Photograph by James Craddock taken in the 1870s, part of the Dunlop Smith Collection: Sir Charles Aitchison Album of Views in India and Burma. Snow scene, looking towards the house, Kennedy Lodge, in Simla (formerly a British summer retreat and now the capital of the state of Himachal Pradesh). The nameplate on the gate announces it as the residence of 'Mr A. O'Meara, Surgeon Dentist'. O'Meara, who had come to Simla in 1850, was for many years the only dentist in the Punjab. Dr Barry O'Meara, the dentist's uncle, was Napoleon's doctor at St. Helena, on whose grave he planted a weeping willow, cuttings from which were sent to Simla.
