From Kabul to Kandahar

A recent post from The Victorian Peeper drew my attention to this exhibition in London.

They describe it as:

From Kabul to Kandahar: 1833 – 1933
8 January – 9 March & 16 April -1 June 2007

The Society’s Afghanistan collection includes hundreds of rare images dating back to the mid 1800’s. A selection of the Society’s historic photographs, drawings and lithographs, accompanied by extracts from historic travel journals and maps feature in this engaging and informative exhibition supported by the DfES. From scenes of Kabul’s market places in 1842 to panoramic views of Kandahar taken after the second Anglo-Afghan war of 1878-80, these largely unseen materials provide a revealing insight into the communities, customs and histories of this mountainous country. The exhibition is curated in partnership with the Afghan Association of London (Harrow) and Brondesbury College for Boys (Brent).
The pavilion is open from Monday to Friday, 10:00-17:00, unless otherwise stated. The exhibitions are available until 13:00 on the final day, when each exhibition is dismantled.

Society exhibitions are regularly interspersed with exhibitions by external organizations. To avoid disappointment, please call us on +44(0) 20 7591 3000 to confirm, if you are travelling to see a specific exhibition.
The Society also produces exhibition sets for hire for other locations, and details can be found using the internal link on the right hand side.
