Chowringhee Road. Speke Street
Artist: Wood, William (fl. 1827-1833)
This lithograph is taken from plate 12 of William Wood's 'Views of Calcutta'. This view shows the government building on Speke Street (now Sudder Street) that was home to the court known as the Sudder Dewany Adawlut. This was the court of civil appeal for Indians outside the jurisdiction of Calcutta. The law was administered under Hindu or Muslim legal codes as appropriate.
