EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the bustling energy of Chowringhee Road in Calcutta (now Kolkata), India, circa 1910. The image showcases a striking view of the iconic Bristol Hotel, a symbol of British colonial architecture during the 1910s. The grandeur of the hotel, with its ornate facade and tall, arched windows, stands in stark contrast to the chaotic street scene unfolding before it. The vibrant street is filled with a diverse mix of people and transport modes. Pedestrians, dressed in a range of traditional Indian and Western attire, navigate the crowded sidewalks, while horse-drawn carriages and carts jostle for space alongside trams and bicycles. The cobblestone road, worn smooth by years of use, is a testament to the heavy foot and wheel traffic. Adjacent to the hotel, the Calcutta Cycle Co and W. Leslie & Co. buildings add to the eclectic mix of architecture along the road. The Cycle Co. sign, with its bold, red lettering, catches the eye, hinting at the city's growing modernity. This photograph offers a glimpse into the rich tapestry of life in colonial India during the 1910s. The juxtaposition of the grandeur of the British-built hotel and the bustling, diverse street scene underscores the complex interplay of cultures and influences that characterized this period in Indian history.
