Leaving the cinema

must have been a stunning film, guys


Children leaving a film screening in Lhasa, 1940. The man to the right is the Dalai Lama’s father, together with one of his non-Dalai-Lama-sons. (See also this related entry, in German.)
The photo seems to be a film still from a roll belonging to the collection of Sir Basil Gould. Roll number five, entitled “subjugation” (“Niederwerfung”).
