Adyar: The Home of the Theosophical Society

Views taken expressly by Alcyone (J. Krishnamurti) with descriptive letterpress by C. W. Leadbeater.

“My brother Krishnamurti has conceived the idea of putting before the Theosophical Society a series of views of the building which constitute the Headquarters, so that the members of the Society who have not the privilege of being here in the flesh may nevertheless know something at least of the outer appearance of its real home, the true centre of its activities. To achieve this he has spent many hours and much labour in prepar-ing a series of photographs, tramping all over the estate to find the best points of view, patiently taking some of the buildings over and over again in different lights and with varying exposures. The result is this book of views.”
