At the 1860 exhibition of the Madras Photographic Society, ‘Mr J. Lafond exhibits some interesting stereographic and other groups, and a view of Vizagapatam from the backwater. Amongst the groups is one of the American Mission School children with Mrs Winslow and some of the native teachers...Native woman with a basket on her head intended as a model for a caryatide, is by no means a favourable specimen of an eastern figure...’ (Madras Journal of Literature and Science, no.11, new series, May 1861, p.193).
