Photograph of the Dutch Factory at Vengurla in Maharashtra from the 'Album of architectural and topographical views, mostly in South Asia' taken by an unknown photographer c.1909. Vengurla was a Dutch settlement from 1638 and they used the port to take on supplies during their eight month blockade of Goa. The town was often a retreat for pirates in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. A small British Factory was set up in the early 1770s and the town and port were ceded to the British in 1812.
