Photograph of the main street in Baroda, Gujarat from the Curzon Collection, taken by an unknown photographer during the 1890s. The old walled city in east Baroda is intersected by two wide streets terminating at the four city gates. At the crossroads in the city centre where the roads meet is a marketplace and the Mandvi, a square Muslim pavilion with three arches on each side, a tiered roof and a clock tower in the centre, dating from 1736. This is a view looking down one of these busy main streets towards the Mandvi.
