Journey to Tibet

Lowell Thomas/Kamat's Potpourri
Commonfolk at Lhasa
Notice the Mongolian fur hat on left, and the western felt hat on right

American journalist Lowell Thomas Jr. visited Tibet (then a mysterious, free nation), in 1949 with his father and met Dalai Lama. They were the 7th and 8th Americans in the history to be granted this privilege. Thomas's 1950 book "Out Of This World - across the Himalayas to forbidden Tibet" contains rare and important photographs of period Tibet, before its collapse in 1959.
