Tibet In Photographs, 1924

As everybody knows, I am combing the world's photo archives, searching for photographs of the Guru Ngadrama statue at Samye.

Along the way, I am discovering other (online) treasures, such as the Bentley Beetham Collection: thousands of photographs and lantern slides, taken in Tibet in 1924.

Just look at the beautiful detail on his photograph of the tsa-tsa, above.
