Photographer's Note

Taken during my days as an tour leader on the Overland route between Kathmandu & London. This is the small town of Jamrud which is regarded as the gateway to the Khyber Pass. Even though the Soviets had invaded Afghanistan, we still had access to the villages of the Khyber Pass as far as the border with Afghanistan. A year or so later, access was restricted. This was an interesting area. Photo was taken on Kodachrome 25ASA - now scanned & digitised, using Pentax K-1000 SLR
