Photographer: Bourne and Shepherd
The Eden Gardens, situated at the northern end of the Maidan, Calcutta, was named after Emily and Fanny Eden, the sisters of Lord Auckland, Governor-General from 1836-1842. The sisters tended the garden when it formed part of the Viceroy's estate and later it became a famous public garden, which now contains Calcutta Cricket Club.
