Last week I was in London and found an interesting photograph in the room of Jonathan Ablett. He said he did not know any details, but could inquire with Fred Naggs. This is what he added as information: “It shows the staff of the Geological Survey of India and was published in one of the Indian journals but I’m not sure which one offhand, possible ZSI. The quality of the published image is rather poor. About 40 years ago I did make enquiries about the original photograph and if it could be traced but at the time I didn’t get anywhere”.
Two malacologists are indicated in the top row: Ferdinand Stoliczka (1838-1874) and William Theobald (1829-1908).
