In the Madras Exhibition of 1855, ‘Dr Pritchard exhibits some good views on a smaller scale of the pagoda at Woontimettah. The old palace and some tombs at Golcondah and Hyderabad. The jury considers these worthy of honorable mention - as very fair specimens of the paper process’[1]
 
In c. 1858 he photographed General Marcus Beresford: ‘Dr Pritchard is a very good photographer and I sat for him more than once. I paste in on the opposite side the result of one attempt.’[2]
