Burmese girl, 1852 (c).

Photograph by John McCosh, 1852 (c)

Surgeon John McCosh of the Bengal Army was one of the first people to photograph Indian subjects during the late 1840s and early 1850s. He produced many fine photographs and the National Army Museum holds an album of these rare images. They include portraits of different peoples including Bengalis, Sikhs, Pathans and Burmese, including the young girl shown here. As well as people, McCosh also photographed palaces, temples, landscapes and military scenes.
