ETHNIC COUPLE IN INDIA, DRESSED IN CULTURAL AND PERIOD CLOTHING AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY EARLY PHOTOGRAPHER G. W. LAURIE

This cabinet card is a portrait of an Indian couple posing in the studio of G. W. Lawrie, a well known Scottish  photographer who worked in Lucknow, India in the 1880’s and 1890’s. The front of the cabinet card advertises that he also had studios in Naini Tal, and Mussoorie, India. The gentleman in the photograph is wearing a sash and holding an umbrella. Is that a pocket watch on his coat? Note his hat; what is this type of hat called? The woman in the photograph has her head and upper body covered by her clothing. Hopefully, a visitor to this site can illuminate the details of this couples ethnic clothing.
