Photographer's Note

'Er petticoat was yaller an' 'er little cap was green,
An' 'er name was Supi-yaw-lat -- jes' the same as Theebaw's Queen,
An' I seed her first a-smokin' of a whackin' white cheroot,
An' a-wastin' Christian kisses on an 'eathen idol's foot:
—Rudyard Kipling, (1892) "On the Road to Mandalay," from Barrack-room Ballads

The morning market in Pakokku.

Tobacco is cultivated in the surrounding Ayeyarwady floodplain, making Pakokku a bustling tabacoo trading center.
