Eugene Clutterbuck Impey (1830-1904), was in the service of the British administration in India. He was a skilled amateur photographer and contributed to exhibitions organised by the Bengal Photographic Society.

This long perspective view of the Taj Mahal is taken from the top of the gateway. The trees as they are shown here are no longer there.

The published caption for this photograph reads:
‘the great enclosure is surrounded by a lofty wall, and is laid out in parterres, planted with flowers and shrubs, surrounded by cypress and other fine trees, and divided by marble canals containing fountains. At the further side stands the Taj, on a terrace over looking the river.’
