Notes

Abstract:
Photo album owned and/or compiled by Mrs. Ernest Muriel highlighting scenes of British occupied Burma from the turn of the 19th century to the early 20th century. Photographs are numbered black and white prints of natives, temples, and landscapes. The caption writer, presumably Mrs. Muriel, indicates that an image of a Buddha Naga statue was presented to F. M. Muriel. F. M. Muriel is credited with painting platinum prints with watercolors for the British postcard printers, Sir Joseph Causton & Sons. Mrs. Muriel also notes that the "Eucaliptus [sic] trees" visible in another photograph were planted by Mr. C. E. Muriel "when he was stationed in Mandalay." C. E. Muriel was a conservator of forests for the Imperial Forestry Service of Bengal under the British Raj in 1916.
