[W. Leslie & Co., ?Chowringhee Road], 1918

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3022BB/13

Scope and Contents

225x264mm. Showing the frontage of the premises of W. Leslie & Co, a three storeyed building dated 1898 on the facade. The exact location of this shop has not been identified, and Macmillan, Playne and Thacker give conflicting information. Macmillan in 1928 states that Leslie & Co. moved into new premises at 19 Chowringhee Road in 1912: his description of these buildings, however, does not match either this photograph or Y3022BB/12. Playne gives the firm's location as nos. 3 and 5, evidently the buildings seen in the Y3022BB/12. Thacker records 2, 3 and 5 Chowringhee Road, with additional premises at 60 Dhurrumtollah Street, (Massey p.99).
