Women clearing weeds - 1895

Photograph of a row of women working in field in the modern state of Jammu and Kashmir, probably near the capital of Srinagar. The photograph dates to the 1890s. Jammu and Kashmir is a Himalayan region in north-western India famous for its mountain scenery and lakes. Kashmiris work mainly on the land, producing crops and tending animals.
