Set of 48 photographs; sepia prints, turned into postcards, depicting scenes of equipment, soldiers and action of the THIRD AFGHAN WAR.  Airplanes, make-shift motorized tanks, columns of marching soldiers, fortifications, weapons, all are shown. The photographer was Afghani, and accompanied the British fighting army. His name was Tundan Razani,  An extraordinary set of original photographs from the Northwes Frontier. This set, is an irreplicable document of the time, and certainly  belongs in a war museum.  After the end of the war, Tundan Razani set up a photographic studio and business in Kabul, and became well known to the local elite, continuing to document various aspects of his nation. Offered only as a lot.
