Photograph of the Bank in Kurrachee (Karachi) from the 'Crofton Collection: Topographical and architectural views mostly in India', taken by an unknown photographer in the 1860s. Buildings in the 19th century often follow what was then a new architectural style that incorporated a blend of Islamic, Hindu and Western influences. Colonial architecture in the form of residential bungalows, educational institutions, churches and railway stations can be seen in all the major cities of Pakistan. The mix of styles can be witnessed in this photograph of the old bank in Karachi.
