“Starting from Omsk, we get inter alia a view of the famous Thian Shan Mountains, one of Khiva, one of Merv, and one of Herat. We see here local life, local buildings, portraits, including the Khans of Khiva, and can form from this set an idea of the neighbourhood in which Russia approaches our Indian Empire. The lecture to accompany the slides is written by the Rev. Dr. Lansdell.”
