Christ Church, Shimla – Memorials

Interior of Christ Church, Shimla

The below images are photos that I took of the memorial plaques in Christ Church, Shimla in October 2015 and later posted to Instagram. I only photographed the left-hand side of the church as my friend was photographing the right-hand side. The full set of images are going to be indexed and transcribed by FIBIS and placed on the FIBIS website. Please contact me if you would like a copy of the original and higher resolution copy as these are edited and trimmed down for instagram.



These are trimmed down versions of the original images on instagram. If you are related to anyone in these photos I am happy to send you a copy of the original, larger and unaltered image if you contact me.
