Samuel Bourne's photographs display a compositional elegance which appealed to Victorian notions of the ‘picturesque’, including strategically framed landscapes of rugged mountain scenery, forests, rivers, lakes and rural dwellings. Bourne chose his routes with care, planning his itineraries based on the latest maps, the locations of renowned geological features, glaciers, high passes, the sources of major rivers, unusual land forms with fossils and places of archaeological note. This photograph, which dates from the 1860s, formed part of an album entitled 'Photographs of India and Overland Route'.
