Overview and metadata sections
The name of the creator of this volume is unknown, but the volume appears to document the vacation of a British couple traveling with their dog through the Kulu and Kashmir regions of India.
There are just under 100 photos, almost all of which have captions indicating the place photographed. There are three photos of humans – one of a woman in a chair being carried by native bearers and two of the person who likely caught fish for dinner one night. The rest of the photographs are all, except for one shot of an Airedale, landscape views and shots of rivers. There are no urban photographs; instead nature is featured through mountains, hillsides, streams, rivers, valleys, and glaciers. There are a few photographs of their camp, their houseboat, and a village they passed.
The trip took them through the following towns, rivers or sights: Naggar, Manali, Sultanpur, Baoli, Mandi, Nalacash, Sukhet and Bilaspur Palace, all in Kulu. In Kashmir it was: Manisbal, Bringi River, Erin River, Arrah Stream and River, Aishmakam Monastery, Kaimula Forest, Watcher's Pool, the Shalimar, Thricker River, an avenue in Khanabal, Atchibal River, Harwan Reservoir, Bandipur, ruins in Martand, Ganderbal, Wangat Valley, and Sonamerg Glacier.
