Ambrotype, full plate, oversized
Contemporary Works / Vintage Works
Inventory no: 3462
Ambrotype shows Murray minus his usual beard with another Englishman and a turbaned Indian. Behind them is a group of Indian hindoos with caps and turbans. One of the Indians is holding a book of prints. Probably taken when Murray was first assigned to India (very early 1850s; the ambrotype was in use in England as early as 1851).
