Poplar avenue, Srinuggur, 1864
Scope and Contents
246 x 295 mm. View looking along the famous poplar-lined avenue at Srinagar, ‘The next day was devoted to an ascent of the Takht Hill and a stroll among the poplar avenues, of which, as I before stated, there are several about Srinuggur. One of them is known as the "poplar avenue," and is a mile long and quite straight. This is a fine walk, and is almost perfect - hardly a tree is wanting, and the effect on looking down it is very striking. It is carpeted with grassy turf, and a level grassy plain stretches on either side of it; at right angles to this are three or four smaller avenues extending to the river, (B.J.P., 25 January 1867, p. 38). Bourne no. 801.
