A hunter with 6 pad elephants crossing a stream, early 20th century


An unusual and atmospheric big game hunting study, probably Edwardian, measuring 9 x 7½ ins  mounted on stout grey photographer’s card but with no credit. The soft focus image shows a hunter in a howdah on the most distant elephant crossing a stream with 6 other pad elephants. The photograph illustrates the scale of a serious hunting trip. The six pad elephants carry camping, cooking equipment, etc and would eventually be loaded with the hunter’s trophies. Loading one can be seen in the other photograph we have listed a few days ago of the same hunt, jan8/6.    jan14/2
