A Syce with his master’s horse. A vintage Victorian photograph by an Indian photographer.


The 8½ x 6 ins print has a few creases and a small closed edge tear at the lower left corner and is marked on the verso by the photographer K. BYRAMJEE, &Co, RAIPUR. The classic pose of syce and horse is typical of those used in earlier Company paintings by artists such as Shaikh Muhammad Khan of Karraya before the advent of photography. The date of this image may well be 1870s.   jul16/1
