Image sizes are 100 × 150 mm (three), and 75 × 105 mm or the reverse (eight); all are captioned in ink (eight on the verso of the mount, three on the image itself). All depict scenes of rural life, most of them identifying Serajgunge in East Bengal. Images include 'Native fisherman', 'Native cobbler at work', 'Hindu holy man with his disciple', 'Wayside umbrella mender', scenes of boat-building and jute preparation, and one captioned 'The creature making his creator! (Idol making)'. Apart from a small light stain to one mount, they are all in fine condition. [11 items].
