Photograph of Eden Garden from 'Views of Calcutta and Barrackpore' taken by Samuel Bourne in the 1860s. View looking across the bridge and lake towards the Burmese pagoda within the Eden Gardens, Calcutta. Emily and Fanny Eden, after whom these gardens were named, were the sisters of the Governor-General Lord Auckland (1836-1842). Emily and Fanny accompanied their brother on a tour 'upcountry', during which Emily made many sketches and watercolours, which were later reproduced, in 1844, as a set of lithographs entitled 'Princes and People of India'.
