Of all India, Cashmere excels in beauty and in antiquity. This picture tells the story in superb photography, bringing us under the Oriental skies, where cascades plunge hundreds of feet. Aside from the sumptuous settings of nature, are the homes and every-day contrivances of the people which are bound to open the eye with wonderment. One scene in particular, a bridge built of three ropes, over which natives draw themselves like spiders on a strand of silky web. The arrival of the Maharajah from his winter sojourn in the plains, was taken at the landing place and affords an exceptional view. The industrial activities of the people are the same as others in the Orient, slow and plodding, weaving, spinning and wood-carving being the chief occupations, of which they are masters.
