Calcutta (Kolkata) Buildings and Street Scene - C1881


View of a row of buildings facing an open field and two ornate gates, along a wide thoroughfare. Three of the buildings prominently display signages on their exteriors: (from left to right) "Outfitters," "Harman & Co," and "J.G. Hanhart." Also visible in the foreground are the fence that surrounds the field and several horse-drawn carriages along the thoroughfare.
