Portrait of a Lepcha Girl Selling Nuts at the Street Market in Darjeeling

This photograph is in sell in ebay auction site. The cost of the photograph is 22 US  Dollars. The information provided under it says:


"Offered is an original 1928 photogravure view. It is a print on paper and was published in a 1928 first edition.

The Lepcha are the aboriginal inhabitants of present day Sikkim.
Under British rule, the Darjeeling area was initially a "Non-Regulation District" (a scheme of administration applicable to economically less advanced districts in the British Raj) — acts and regulations of the British Raj did not automatically apply to the district in line with rest of the country. As a consequence of the 1905 Partition of Bengal, the area came under the jurisdiction of the Rajshahi division and was placed in the newly created province of East Bengal and Assam. Later in 1919, the area was declared a "backward tract"."

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
