The historic snaps, which date from the late 1860s and early 1870s, feature both the native population and British officers. The album, which contains 66 photos, also boasts views of the country's stunning scenery and the idyllic neighbouring Andaman Islands. One candid photo shows a Burmese girl in traditional attire (left), while another shows a group of officers relaxing with polo mallets (top right). Bottom right: The Tonghoo field force with their elephant battery. Inset: The ancient figure of Guadama near Pegu.
