Mountain of the Moon – Part 6

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.


About thecrestedjay

I am passionate about football, jazz, classic rock, classic movies, crime, science fiction and P G Wodehouse. And also about NBA, western and Indian classical music. Since the wife will also read this blog, I cannot reveal my other passions in public. Have one son who plays the guitar, spent some time as an animator and now works for a digital marketing and advertising company. I also have one (1) wife. I spent a lot of my time on my music and books collection. I also have a passion for travelling but not a great deal of time and money to spend on this. Hopefully, in the future, I'll be able to do so.
