Caption: Ta-Keda woman, Andaman Islands. 19th-century anthropological photograph of a woman of the Ta-Keda (or Ta-Kede) people of the Andaman Islands. The indigenous peoples of these islands, in the north-eastern Indian Ocean, first came into sustained contact with the outside world in the 1850s. This woman (Keliwa) is around 45 years old. The screen indicates the scale (each square is 2 inches wide). She is around 4 feet, 8 inches (1.42 metres) tall. Her left arm is fully extended horizontally and rests on a stand. This photograph, by British naval officer Maurice Vidal Portman (1860-1935), is from 'Andamanese Islanders' (volume 11, 1893).
