This book takes a fresh look at one of Asia's great cities, a metropolis of hope and decay that was once the Second City of the British Empire after London. With around 200 photographs, including historic black-and-white images, coupled with a timely and detailed text, the book takes us through the streets, ghats, and corridors of Calcutta and paints an inclusive and nuanced portrait of the city.
