A Scottish photographer's stunning collection of photos of India and Afghanistan in the 1880s have been unearthed after 130 years.<br />
<br />
G.W Lawrie set up a studio in Lucknow, northern India in the 1880s and took captivating black and white photos of his new surroundings.<br />
<br />
Included in the collection of 40 photos are views of lavish temples including the King of Oudh's palace in Lucknow, opulent buildings and beautiful scenery.<br />

However, Lawrie was also interested in the native population and took photos of them going about their everyday lives.
