Biographical / Historical:
British photographer Charles T. Scowen arrived in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in the early 1870s, where he was first employed as a clerk. By 1876, Scowen had established a studio, Scowen & Co., in Kandy, with a second location appearing in Columbo by the 1890s. There appear to have been several Scowens working in the studios, as Charles T. Scowen returned to England in 1885. C. Scowen was listed as the proprietor until 1891 and M. Scowen was the proprietor when the firm was finally sold in 1893. Images from Scowen & Co. were used to illustrate a number of books about Ceylon and the tea trade.
Skeen & Co. was a commercial photography studio active in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) from 1860-1903. In 1860, William Skeen, who was the official Government Printer, purchased J. Parting's photography studio in Colombo for his son, William Louis Henry Skeen, who had studied at the London School of Photography. In 1891 another Skeen & Co. studio was opened in Kandy. The firm was known for its images of agriculture (particularly tea and spices), industry (the construction of the Ceylon railroads and the Colombo Breakwater), landscapes and ethnic groups.
John Edward Saché (1824-1882) was an American commercial photographer, born in Prussia as Johann Edvart Zachert. He arrived in Calcutta in 1864 and for the next twenty years traveled widely in northern India, photographing major towns and sites. Saché's first professional association was with W. F. Westfield in Calcutta but he would go on to establish other studios, either alone or in partnerships, in Nainital, Bombay, Lucknow and Benares, among other locations.
Samuel Bourne (1834-1912) had already begun to earn recognition for his work in England, having exhibited at the London International Exhibition of 1862, when he decided to give up his position in a bank and depart for India to work as a professional photographer. He arrived in Calcutta early in 1863, initially setting up a partnership with William Howard. They moved up to Simla, where they established a new studio Howard & Bourne, to be joined in 1864 by Charles Shepherd, to form Howard, Bourne & Shepherd. By 1866, after the departure of Howard, it became Bourne & Shepherd, the name under which the firm continues to operate to this day. Although Bourne only spent 6 years in India, his time there was extremely productive. He undertook three major expeditions in the Himalayas, creating an impressive body of work which combined the highest technical quality and a keen artistic eye, while working under difficult physical conditions. Bourne left India for good in 1870, selling his interest in Bourne & Shepherd shortly thereafter and abandoning commercial photography.

One albumen print of a photograph from the terrace of the Chota Imambara complex, with a view of the tomb of Zenab Aliya and a Jama Masjid (mosque), in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India, circa 1860s. View from an angle with two Indian men in the center of the photograph. Signed "Bourne 1051" in the lower right corner of the image.
Biographical / Historical:
The tomb of Zenab Aliya (Zinat Algiya, or alternatively, Asiya Begum) is a part of the Chota Imambara complex in Lucknow. The complex began construction in 1838, but was not completed for over fifty years. It was intended as a meeting hall for Shia Muslims, as well as a mausoleum for Muhammad Ali Shah, King of Awadh (alternatively Oudh), and his family members. The tomb was built for both Zinat Algiya, daughter of Muhammad Ali Shah, and her husband. The building seen behind the tomb of Zinat Algiya is a Jama Masjid, which was also commissioned by Muhammad Ali Shah in 1839. After his death, his wife, Malika Jahan Sahiba, ensured the completion of the masjid in 1845.

King Muhammad Ali took power amid a set of dynastic disputes; he was aided to the throne in 1837 by the British. He ruled for only five years before his death. The increasing involvement of the British in varying dynasties in India shows the continually growing power of the East India Company before the British Crown took formal control of the country in 1858.

Scope and Contents:
One albumen print by Felix Beato, mounted on card, with "Lucknow. Inside the Secunderabagh Shewing [sic] where 2600 Sepoys were Killed" inscribed in black ink below the print. View taken circa 1858 of the interior of the Sikandar Garden, with skeletal remains strewn across the grounds.
Biographical / Historical:
Lucknow was the capital of the former state of Oudh (Awadh), Uttar Pradesh, India. The city was an instrumental part of the Indian Rebellion of 1857. The British first annexed the region in 1856 and were repeatedly attacked by Indian rebels in 1857. The city was abandoned by the British in the winter of 1857-58 and was reattained in March 1858. Over the course of the Rebellion, the cities of Delhi and Lucknow were attacked, with heavy casualties on both sides.

The Sikandar Garden is part of complex located on the outskirts of Lucknow. During the siege of the city, the Sikandar (or Secundra) Garden was used as a refuge by hundreds of Indian soldiers (sepoys) who were under attack by British troops. On November 16, 1857, the villa was overrun and approximately 2000 sepoys were killed. After the fighting, the British dead were buried in a deep trench, but the Indian dead were left to rot. In early 1858, Beato took this well-known photograph, possibly the first photographic depiction of human corpses, although there is some controversy over whether he had some of the corpses disinterred for dramatic effect.

Although he was born in Greece, Felice Beato worked as a press photographer in England and achieved recognition for his coverage of British political conflicts, photographing the Crimean War of 1855 and, together with his brother-in-law, James Robertson, the 1858 Indian Mutiny in Delhi and Lucknow. The images Beato took during this time are thought to be the first to depict actual human corpses on the battlefield. After moving to Yokohama in 1863, Beato opened the area's first photography studio and documented the people and culture of Japan for the next twenty years, taking photographs and selling them to tourists. During his travels, Beato was able to gain access to Japanese ports that were open only to diplomats by acting as an official photographer for the British navy.
