Pen-and-ink and wash drawing by Henry Salt (1780-1827) of the bank of the Ganges below Kara in Uttar Pradesh, dated 8th September 1803. This drawing is inscribed on the back in pencil: 'Ganges. Below Currah. 8 Sept.'; and on the front: '13.' Viscount Valentia (George Annesley) wrote, "September 8.- At half after three the boats were removing: by six I was in sight of Currah, which extends for above a mile along the western bank, on the summit of which the old fort was situated; of which nothing now remains except ruins. A new one of brick, with a stone gateway, and four round towers, the height of the walls, is unfinished. As the pinnaces were not in sight, I was tempted by the appearance of several picturesque pagodas overshadowed by tamarinds and banian trees, to land at a gaut, and visit one of the largest, where was an image of Mahadeo in the centre, and the bull looking at him."
