Photograph showing the bridge of boats across the Indus and the Attock fort, seen from Khairabad, now in Pakistan, taken by John Burke in 1878. John Burke accompanied the Peshawar Valley Field Force, one of three British Anglo-Indian army columns deployed in the Second Afghan War (1878-80), despite being rejected for the role of official photographer.

The Buddhist sculpture produced by the Kushans in the Swat Valley was referred to as Gandharan, and was influenced by Graeco-Roman elements

Here is old drawing of Khyber Pass.

Maliks (chieftains) of Khyber Pass

This portrait shows the Maliks or village leaders who were relied upon by the British to provide services such as maintaining the peace and keeping frontier roads like that through the Khyber Pass open.

Kohistani Chiefs(Sardars) & Pathan war pics with mighty British

Photograph, a formal group portrait of chieftains from Kohistan near the Peshawar border of the North West Frontier Province (now in Pakistan), taken in 1879-80.

Photograph showing a British army camp with men of 1 Company, Royal Horse Artillery, posed in the foreground, taken by John Burke in 1878 near the Safed Koh mountain range which runs from east to west at the north-westerly end of the great Himalayan Range.
The British army camped at Safed Sang during the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-80) as there was a good water supply in the valley. However it was also stony, treeless, dusty and very exposed. The camp was in a strategically important position in the North West Frontier Province on the route from Peshawar (now in Pakistan) to Kabul (Afghanistan).
