Monks at river crossing

Monks at river crossing
3 0 c m
actual image size: 32cm x 21cm


Group of three monks at the river crossing close to the Dekyi Lingka, where the Mission stayed whilst in Lhasa. A ferry can be seen out of focus in the background. The Eyemo cine camera used by the Mission can be seen on a tripod behind the group. Evan Nepean, the wireless operator, very often took over use of this camera and the fact that he is not seen in this image may be because he was the still photographer behind this image

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
