The Bank of Bengal, as it is, 1918

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3022AA/14

Scope and Contents

284x196mm. View from the corner of Strand Road and Esplanade Row of the Bank of Bengal buildings, showing the extensions to the original structure (seen in the background), added in 1879. The new buildings are in similar style to the old, but with the roofline over the projecting pavilions enlivened by segmental and straight-sided pediments. These extensions erected by Mackintosh, Burn & Co., formed the premises of the Public Debt Office. A section of the Port Trust Railway, running along the E. bank of the Hooghly, can be seen in the foreground, (Massey p.51).
