Photograph of Burmese workers loading harvested pineapples onto carts in Burma (Myanmar), taken by Philip Adolphe Klier in the 1890s. Pineapples are among a wide range of tropical fruits grown in Burma, including mangosteens and the renowned durian. The photograph is from an album devoted almost entirely to Lord Elgin's Burma tour of November to December 1898. Victor Alexander Bruce (1849-1917), ninth Earl of Elgin and 13th Earl of Kincardine, served as Viceroy of India between 1894 and 1899.
