    "Arthur Murrells Frontier book" This collection of pictures is unusual both in terms of the quality of the photography, which is outstanding for the period, and also for the breadth of interest. Virtually every picture clearly indicates what, when and where is shown, and some of the images, for instance the ones of the Kabul river after the storm, are almost minimalist in style - very much ahead of their time. For anyone interested in World War I in general, and in the India/Pakistan/Afghanistan/Iran/Iraq frontier areas, these pictures tell a vivid and unique tale.
