Abstract: The collection comprises views of structures and sculptures in Sri Lanka from the sites of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa. The twelve photographs of Anuradhapura are by Charles Thomas Scowen. The photographs of Polonnaruwa were likely all taken by Joseph Lawton. The photographs were taken shortly after the rediscovery of these important Buddhist monuments, but before official excavations were begun by the Archaeological Department of Ceylon in the 1890s.
