Vue de l'entrée du Wari Bunder Hospital de Bombay, pendant l'épidémie de peste de 1896-1897. Comme l'indique la légende au verso, on aperçoit au centre un malade couché sur un brancard, prêt à être pris en charge par le personnel médical. Comme le signale son tampon, ce cliché a été acheté par le peintre Louis Dumoulin lors de l'un de ses voyages en Extrême-Orient. Le MET, qui possède un tirage de ce cliché, identifie le photographe comme étant un certain "Shivshanker Narayen".
