Photograph of Medical College Hospital from 'Views of Calcutta and Barrakpore' was taken by Samuel Bourne in the 1860s. General view of the Medical College Hospital, located on College Street. This Corinthian building was completed in 1852.

By the 1860s, commercial photography was becoming well-established in India and
this growing market attracted the young Nottingham photographer Samuel Bourne to the subcontinent in 1863. During a residence of seven years, Bourne produced thousands of landscape and architectural views, but his fame and the success of his studio, rests primarily on the results of three arduous photographic expeditions to Kashmir and the Himalayas.
