Photograph of the bridge at Gandamak. A stream is running through a rocky plain with a high stone bridge in the middle distance. There is an area of raised rock to the right, on which there are a number of trees. The mountains extend into the distance behind, their peaks covered with snow. The photographer John Burke travelled with the Peshawar Valley Field Force during the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-80), one of a series of conflicts between Britain and Russia over control of Afghanistan. His images from the war capture landscapes, key strategic sites and people involved in the conflict.
From the collection of King Edward VII when Prince of Wales
