Lot Essay

Tripe visited Hullabeed (now Halebid) in 1854 and exhibited sixty-eight views from there and Belloor (now Belur) at the Madras Exhibition of Raw Products, Arts and Manufactures of Southern India in February 1855. They were awarded a first class medal as "the best series of photographic views on paper". These images pre-date Tripe's expedition to Burma and his appointment as Photographer to the Madras Presidency.
