Photographs revealed of Tibet 100 years ago

An album of extremely rare photographs of Tibet and its people, taken during a 1903 British mission, has both been publicized for the first time and auctioned off.  The amazing photos were taken by Officer John Claude White and are the first known of their kind.  Read or listen to an NPR interview by Renee Montagne and the auction house director of books and manuscripts, and also see some wonderful examples of the photos.  The auction took place on October 5 at Bonhams,  and the album sold for 38,000 pounds – read more here.
