This photograph of a Mr.Doyne's House was taken in the 1860s by Samuel Bourne.

In Ballygunge, a southern suburb of Calcutta, Richard V. Doyne, a High Court Judge, lived in this neo-classical mansion.

By the 1860s, commercial photography was becoming well-established in India and this growing market attracted the young Nottingham photographer Samuel Bourne to thesubcontinent 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.
