This is a photograph taken by Francis Frith in 1875 of four members of the Dogra community from Jammu & Kashmir.
Francis Frith, then an owner of a grocery business, developed interest in photography in Liverpool around 1851. By 1856 he had his first photographic exhibition at the London Photographic Society. In 1859, he established his photography company Francis Frith & Co., which specialised in postcards of landscapes and architectural views from Britain and the Middle East. As his Photography business grew, Frith hired other photographers to capture views under Francis Frith & Co. His photographs from India were captured around c. 1865-1875.
