Some pictures of Calcutta of the early 1900s – fascinating stuff! This is the city in which Shankar, the hero of “Chander Pahar” lived and studied. He goes to college in Calcutta; the author doesn’t mention which. I dug out some old pictures of Calcutta of the early 1900s, which may be of interest. This one is from http://www.flickr.com/photos/39476299@N02/5307501414/ – titled “European Quarter Calcutta 1900’s”.
Here’s another one – “Calcutta India Great Eastern Hotel 1900’s Postcard”:
Here’s one titled “Presidency College, Calcutta, c 1925”
I am sure some of my friends can add to this wonderful collection of photos of Calcutta of a century ago.
