Abstract:

Large album contains 303 black and white photographs and several watercolors and sketches documenting the travels of a British family, primarily in Burma. Photographs illustrate a journey by ship from Marseille harbor and along the Riviera coast (France) to Port Said, through Suez Canal (Egypt) to Colombo, Kandy (Ceylon, now Sri Lanka), then to Burma. Burmese photos - taken primarily in Mandalay, Rangoon, and Bhamo - feature rivers (particularly the Irawaddy), forests, and other scenic views; local peoples; agriculture; elephants and pack animals; pagodas (many at Anarajpura); British soldiers, officials' homes. The travelers continue to China, then return home via ship, with shots including Stromboli (Italy). The remaining photos are of England and Scotland, visiting various families at their homes. Locations include Oxford, Harefield, Brampton, Lindfield (England); and St. Andrews and Elie (Scotland). Photos feature beaches; people playing golf; castle and cathedral ruins at St. Andrews; British men, women, and their children.
