Photograph of Pir Hashim Shah's Tomb at Matiari in Sindh, Pakistan, taken by Cousens' photographic assistant in 1896. Cousens wrote in the Progress Report of the Archaeological Survey of Western India, 1895 to 1896, "When I left Hyderabad for Hala via Shahdapur, I sent on a draftsman and photographic assistant direct by road, thirty miles, so as to visit and get photos of the mosque and tombs at Matiari on the way. These were found to be of no great interest, the oldest being about 130 years old". This is a general view of the tomb, a square domed building, built in 1760.
