Illustrations from 'Church Missionary Intelligencer' (1854), a book that among other things has an account of a bunch of Christian missionaries in Kashmir getting chased around by Muslim mobs and getting asked 'trick' questions by a Pandit.
The geography of this place has been messing with my mind. Previously, I believed that the hillock in the background was misplaced, a figment of western imagination that mixed up Srinagar and Baramulla. It turns out that the composition of illustration is in all probability correct. The doubt created my native imagination. This is Sumbul Bridge in Baramulla ( and the hillock is probably Aha Teng ?)
