Photograph of a view of Srinagar, down the river from the third bridge, in Jammu and Kashmir, from the Macnabb Collection, taken by Samuel Bourne in 1863. Bourne undertook three extensive expeditions to Kashmir and the Himalayas between 1863 and 1866. He took many views of the city of Srinagar and its surroundings during his stay and commented, 'Photography here became one of the most delightful occupations'. The same year that this image was taken Bourne submitted a number of photographs to the 6th Annual Exhibition of the Bengal Photographic Society of 1863. He impressed judges and critics with the clarity and composition of his images, and won a gold medal for one of his views of Wanga Valley.
