Lithograph of the Ochterlony Monument in Calcutta by Vincent Robert Alfred Brooks (1814-85) from one of 'Eight views of Calcutta' published in London c.1870. Sir David Ochterlony (1758-1825) was a Major-General who was credited with ensuring British success in the Anglo-Nepalese War of 1814-1816. The monument has since been renamed the Shahid Minar and is now dedicated to Indian martyrs. The column was designed by C.K. Robinson and erected in 1828.
