মিডিলটন রোডের দৃশ্য, চৌরঙ্গী, কলকাতা, c১৮৩০
This lithograph 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.
Taken from plate 20 from ‘Views of Calcutta’ – an album of paintings by William Wood.
