Medium: Lithograph

Date: 1833

Shelfmark: X630(10)

This lithograph derives from plate 10 from William Wood's 'Views of Calcutta'. This view is the only one of Wood's series to show specifically Indian-style dwellings in Calcutta. They are near the first of the large 'tanks', or manmade reservoirs, on the edge of the Chowringhee district. The tanks were used as a general water-supply, for bathing and washing by the inhabitants of the city.
