Early Photographs of Tibet Auctioned

A remarkable collection of seventy-two photographs from Tibet, taken during the 1903 Younghusband incursion, are to be auctioned in London this week, where they are expected to bring GBP 15,000 (around USD $23,000).

The Daily Mail is carrying the complete story, and it is really worth a click to see the photograph of some seriously dreadlocked Tibetan nuns, smiling for the camera.

Badu-la was not a Chinese (as in the picture label) and neither was he an Amban (as in the comments).

He was a physician UNDER the Panchen Lama.

Go here to find out the very shocking story that implicates the photo:

Or go to Googlebooks and search for the term Tashi together with Badula.

That way it may be possible to find something nearer the truth
