Photograph taken in ca. 1866 by John Edward Sache, of the Howrah Railway Jetty in Calcutta, West Bengal. This view looks towards the stone jetty, with local craft at their moorings in the foreground. A poster fixed to the side of the jetty announcing the publication of the Times of India Directory appears to be dated 1867, but it is not quite sharp enough to be deciphered with certainty.
