Assistant Superintendent of Police, Midnapore.
‘The [seventeen] photographs [of architecture in the Midnapore District] are the work of Mr W. Campbell, of the Bengal Police, and although it will be seen from the Collector’s letter, that Mr Campbell has declined to put any price on his works, I would suggest that a sum of Rupees 250 may be given to him, as I am informed by a gentleman, who is a practical photographer, that this is a fair remuneration.’ [1]
