British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Hi! I haven't been able so far to identify the little person pictured in this CDV (ca.1864/5 according to the back design). I would be grateful for any hints. Thanks!

This may be fairly obvious, but we think she may be Nepalese

Thanks for your reply, Hugo. I had thought about Thailand or Birmania, but yes -- Nepal is definitely possible as well. I looked into a few books on the subject, but couldn't find anything thus far... I had also assumed a "he" instead of a "she", but that is likewise a possibility. I found it together with a CDV of Lavinia Warren in an old CDV album, but that doesn't mean that they have crossed paths. Both CDVs date to c. 1865 according to the backside design, which I illustrate below. Thanks again and kind regards, Jose.
