Plate 3 from "Recollections of India. Part 1. British India and the Punjab" by James Duffield Harding (1797-1863) after Charles Stewart Hardinge (1822-1894), the eldest son of the first Viscount Hardinge, the Governor General. Within eighteen months of Viscount Hardinge's arrival in India as Governor-General, the First Anglo-Sikh War broke out in the Punjab in December 1845. Hardinge and his son, Charles travelled in this region. Charles Hardinge wrote, "The sketch opposite represents a party returning from a Boar Hunt. The period is evening. This amusement is generally popular with the English in the neighbourhood of Calcutta."
