Plain, North and East of Kandahar (1878-1880)




This photograph of a plain located northeast of Kandahar is from an album of rare historical photographs depicting people and places associated with the Second Anglo-Afghan War. Foothills are visible in the distance. The buildings and other objects in the photograph are not identified, but the irregular pillars could well be tombstones.
