A BOOK ON KOLKATA : CALCUTTA TO KOLKATA, PICTORIAL REMINISCENCES OF THE CITY
Calcutta to Kolkata, Pictorial Reminiscences of the City, attempts to recapture the city the way it was captured in early and later part of British India by various photographers. The city which used to enchant photographers and historians of yore enthralls today’s photographers and chroniclers even more. We were fascinated by the old photographs of our city and exclaimed how quaint our city used to be. Then the idea of taking the photographs from the same angle emerged. But it was easier said than done. The buildings, streets, temples, mosques markets are there with their original structures intact, yet taking their photographs the way Samuel Bourne or Francis Frith had taken is impossible today. Huge trees which were not there at the time of Samuel Bourne and Francis Frith are now blocking the views. Then comes the all pervasive hawkers. But essentially Calcutta has not changed much. The same traditions, same ways of living are still alive in the city of Kolkata. Same buildings, same streets, some in very good conditions and some in different stages of decay are still there. Thanks to current enthusiasm with real-estate development, a lot of these buildings without heritage tags are fast disappearing from the cityscape. The book aimed at creating interest about the city in our progeny, the future custodians of our city. A picture speaks a thousand words. Here pictures say all. Texts are written to complement the marvelous photographs of then and now.
