BOWRA. A cdv sized portrait of the young Chief of Bowra, Punjab.


Bowra. A carte de visite sized portrait, 3½ x 2¼ ins, on part of an old album page, identified in neat contemporary ink writing as Chief of Bowra. An attractive full length portrait of a young chief. The only Bowra we have located is a small area close to Nabha in the Punjab although the type of headdress looks more like kinds found in Central India or the Bombay Presidency. The reverse of the card has a rather weak image of a clockmaker.  aug19/1
