Amateur, Burma
Arakan Battalion
Letter from Major G. Verner, Commissioner of Arakan, in response to government request for information and photographs ‘of specimens of the different tribes in India’, states that:
I regret to say there is no professional photographer in this Province, and there is but one amateur, Lieutenant C.A. Munro of the Arracan Battalion, who, on my asking him, said he would be happy to undertake the work, if Government would be satisfied with the photographs he takes, but that, he fears, they will not be good enough, he says he will do his best, and he wishes to know soon whether he is to undertake the work or not, as he will have to procure from Calcutta a supply of chemicals; and last evening he sent me a specimen of one of his photographs, which I enclose herewith, in order that His Honor may be able to determine whether a collection of such photographs would answer. Mr Munro says he can make them rather larger, or of the size of the accompanying paper.[1]
