Calcutta, 1912. All lit up and beautiful, waiting for King George V and Queen Mary to visit.

This is one of the 178 plate-glass negatives found inside a size-nine Peter Lord shoebox by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) in Edinburgh. See more photos here.
