Gertrude Bell, the near legendary British adventurer, archeologist, administrator, and spy (apparently to be played by Angelina Jolie in an upcoming Ridley Scott bio-pic) - spent a couple of weeks in Burma in early 1903. Very little survives from the trip except a few letters home and this photograph, of a "Burmese girl", taken by Gertrude Bell herself.
