A hand-coloured print of Chandernagore, from the Fiebig Collection: Views of Calcutta and Surrounding Districts, taken by Frederick Fiebig in 1851.

This is a view of naval buildings along the riverfront at Chandernagore, 30 km from Calcutta. The town was ruled by the French from 1673-1952 and was a great centre of trade, even at one time outstripping Calcutta. Its French heritage may still be seen in its architecture.
