View on the Jhelum River
(Near Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir)

Fred Bremner,  ~1900

"Leaving the city one cannot do better than be rowed up to the Dhal Lake, which is aid to be one of the most beautiful spots in Kashmir. . .. Entering the Dhal Lake, which measures about 4 miles by 2 1/2, one cannot help but admire the works of nature which are depicted in a variety of beautiful ways in the stillnes of the water combined with mirror-like reflections of the mountain ridges." (Forty Years, pp. 48-49)
