Lots of wonderful photo data in these collections. In the
Gertrude Bell archive are some amazing old photos she took of
Borobudur --in 1903--perhaps before one of the earthquakes that
wrecked a lot of it? (no time to look up dates)
Interesting photos of Burma--lots more data here, folks. captions
often leave much to be desired, some are hers and some added by
archive curators--
To find the Bell archive go here first
hotographs.html  and then scroll down to Gertude Bell. 
The segment with Borobudur is here:  
Album RTW Volume 3
Round The World
India, Burma, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia
