Photograph from the 'Album of Indian Views' taken by Samuel Bourne in 1864. In 1864 Samuel Bourne made his ‘Kashmir Trek’, from March to Christmas Eve of that year, starting from Lahore through the Kangra Valley onto the Vale of Kashmir and finally on to the Sind Valley. During his travels he enjoyed his visit to Srinagar, from July to September, and spent a pleasant time taking picturesque views, including this river scene, with an avenue of poplars along the banks. Bourne took a number of images daily while he toured the city, and the Dal Lake and its islands by private boat; he declared that 'Photography here became one of the most delightful occupations'.
