An interesting note, I just finished watching the documentary "Photo Wallahs" which was a study on photography in the region of northern India in 1992. Great short movie I would recommend, which touches on lots of subjects we can still draw parallels to today.

Within the movie there was a short clip of a photographer using the box camera to make a photograph, using (I'm am guessing) coccine dye on the paper negative before making a positive dupe. Interesting to see the use of this type of camera in this region as well since it is somewhat close to Afghanistan.

Even the image on the website shows the camera in use!
