Notes
  • 192 x 257 mm. Showing two girls standing with arms around each other. This photograph is reproduced in: Scott, J.G. (1900), 'Gazetteer of Upper Burma and the Shan States', Rangoon: Printed by the Superintendent, Government printing, Burma. In Scott's work the girls are identified as 'Chinboks', who lived in the hills from the Maw River down to the Saw chaung (watercourse) in the southern Chin Hills. The costume worn by these girls is well-described: 'The dress of the women is a sort of tabard, or sleeveless jersey with a V-shaped throat. Below this is a small loincloth, which shows about six inches below the jacket. These jackets are of the same pattern as the men's cloth and are also home-made ... Neither sex cut the hair; it is tied with strips of cloth, usually red, in a knot on the top of the head.' (volume 1, part 1, p.461).
