View of Chowringhee Road and Middleton Street, 1833

চৌরঙ্গী রোড ও মিডিলটন স্ট্রিটের দৃশ্য, ১৮৩৩

a painting by William Wood

Wood’s view of Middleton Street perfectly illustrates the typical Calcutta scene of the time, comprising a grand colonnaded building surrounded with trees. In the foreground, the natives of Calcutta are pictured going about their business, tending to their animals and relaxing in groups.
