John Falconer, British Library 
A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia

 
Amateur, India
11th Madras Native Infantry from 1841.
At the Madras Photographic Society Exhibition of 1860, he showed Ď20 photographs taken by the collodion-albumen or Tabenotís [Taupenotís] process toned by the alkaline bath of gold without any acid ingredient. Also one very excellent group of tamarind trees by the oxymel process. The subjects of these photographs are views at the Gairsoppa Falls and in the Western Ghats. These though execellent in focusing and manipulation, fail to convey an idea of the grandeur of the scenes represented. The Committee of the Photographic Society were very much pleased to remark the steady improvement mad yearly by Captain Girdlestone, but on compating his photographs with those by Col. Ross of Her Majestyís 73rd Regt., they came to the unanimous conclusion, that those by Col. Ross were the best...The second prize in landscapes was awarded to Captain Girdlestone, 11th Regt. M.N.I.í[1]
