The latest 19th century photograph album to be digitised and made available online is Dougan 96. Most of the 175 photographs are the work of Samuel Bourne (1834-1912), who was based in India in the 1860s as part of the Bourne and Shepherd partnership.
He was particularly noted for his landscape photographs but the album features landmark buildings and urban scenes too. The majority of the photographs were taken in India, with some images of Burma, Kashmir, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
Special Collections has outstanding resources documenting the history of photography. See our Photography subject page for more information.
