Carpenter Scholes Photo Gallery: Persia c1890s

Scholes 16: ?Lah Lenenile Nomail

The images in this gallery are from the Carpenter Scholes Collection GB165-0371. The original images are albumen prints of Persia including studio portraits and street scenes some of which are of Tehran, as well as roads and bridges in the 1890s.

Carpenter Scholes was a civil engineer who carried out his construction work in England, New Zealand and Persia and was in Persia in the 1890s. It is not clear whether Carpenter Scholes was the photographer of these albumen prints, although this is unlikely for the studio portraits.

For further information about this collection please see the Catalogue of the Carpenter Scholes Collection

The captions in this gallery are from labels that appear on the back of the albumen prints.

For viewing purposes the images in this gallery are at a low resolution. Higher resolution images for publication are available from the Middle East Centre Archive.
