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

 
Amateur, India
Educated King’s College, London; Indian Medical Service (Madras), 1855-85. At the 1859 exhibition of the Madras Photographic Society,
‘Dr Pearl exhibits 20 stereographs taken principally in and about Trichinopoly. These are very meritorious and many of them most interesting and characteristic of the locality, 10 are views of the Palace of Trichinopoly, giving an excellent idea of its present state. There are also two Mussulman tombs, and a chutrum near Madura. The Byragee (no.2) is excellent, as also the group of native women with chatties (no.15). But perhaps the best and most striking picture of this collection is the view of Pulney Falls, the stereoscopic effect of which is admirable. The Committee recommended a special medal for this collection.’[1]
