Scope and content
View of Pertabghur, a fort in the Mahabaleshwur hills. The Falkland's stayed there during the hot seasons while Lord Falkland was governor of Bombay (1848-53). This is attributed to Lady Falkland because the style and media used are similar to her other signed eastern works in the album. Lady Falkland mentions Pertabghur in Chow-Chow, the book she wrote about her eastern travels (1857. London: Hurst and Blackett, vol 1, pp 164-5.).
A Ghaut is a steep pass or ascent of a mountain.
The inscription is in Lady Falkland's handwriting.
