About This Image

Standing in front of a thatched-roof dwelling, four women, a young boy, and four children pose for their portrait. More than likely taken as a token of exotica for album collections back home, or for ethnographic studies. Both Skeen and Scowen were noted for their descriptive subjects that showed different levels of society in India and Indochina.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
