Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of a bungalow through trees in Murree, now in Pakistan, taken by Baker and Burke in 1865, from the Macnabb Collection. Murree is situated in the foothills of the Himalayas north-east of Islamabad in Pakistan. It was the summer residence of the local Government in the Punjab until 1876, and 39 miles from the large military cantonment on the Grand Trunk road at Rawalpindi. The hill-station at Murree was established in 1851; it was the second largest hill-station in the area after the summer Presidency Capital at Simla. This is a view of one of the houses for rent in Murree, possibly 'Ashleigh'.
