The subjects of this photograph by Johnson and Henderson belong to the historic community of Jews in India known as “Bene Israel”. Dressed in traditional costume they are teachers of the Free Church of Scotland’s Mission School and the Jewish English School in Bombay, British India. The various books and scrolls, as well as the pose of the seated subject suggest their scholarly status.
