The Royal Barrack, Fort William, [Calcutta]
Medium: Photographic print
This photograph of the Royal Barracks within Fort William from the 'Walter Hawkins Nightingale (PWD) collection: Album of views of Calcutta, was taken by an unknown photographer in the 1880s. The Royal Barracks were completed in 1764. "The foundation of the Royal Barracks in Fort William do not answer the expectation conceived respecting them, but on the contrary, they appear not sufficiently firm to support the weight of such a heavy structure."
