Photograph of the gorge through the Khyber Pass, beyond the Fort of Ali Masjid. A river is running through the gorge with steep rocky mountains to either side. Four men are standing in the water and a man wearing a turban is standing on a rock in the foreground. 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 soldiers involved in the conflict.
From the collection of King Edward VII when Prince of Wales
