[Photo Album]: British Expatriates in the Middle East and Asia
India, Myanmar, England. 1890s. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 11.5". Green pebbled cloth with leather corners and spine and gilt decorations and edges. A collection of 136 sepia toned photographs measuring between 2.25" x 3.5" and 11" x 8.75", some with captions. Album is very good minus with spotting, worn edges, and loose pages, with very good photographs that have some fading and scattered foxing. An album of an English expatriate family in the 1890s while living and vacationing throughout Pakistan, India, Burma (now Myanmar), and Malaysia, as well as at the family's home in Devon, England. The album follows the family through the end of the 19th Century and the beginning of the 20th with group portraits of the family and the large groups they traveled with; one of the group on a tennis court in full Victorian dress, another of children dressed as clowns. The photos show the Marble Rocks at Bhedaghat, Jabalpur and the "picnic group" (as it's captioned) that went on the journey, as well as a large view of the hill city of Simla in India dated 1898. There are images of boating, Native Indians pulling a Victorian woman in a cart and a few others posing with the families they presumably worked for, and picnics in Burma. Towards the end of the album there are images of the family's English home in Devon which include the family and their bicycles. An extensive collection of a British upper middle class family living and vacationing throughout the Middle East and Asia in the 1890s. .
