India appears to be more developed and orderly then it is now.
One of those best pics ever. Great work Indeed.
Feel like getting my hands on a time machine and roll back to those good old days.Indian architecture and others were laid in much better position before the brits came in.Ofcourse ignoring the industrial rev.
Once again,Keep up with the good work.

Double Entrance from Half Tide Basin to Dock, showing Gates in course of erection of Calcutta Docks - 1886
Photo of the Calcutta (Kolkata) Docks taken in 1886 by an unknown photographer showing the double entrance to the dock and the gates being erected . The Calcutta Port is the only major riverine port in India and constitutes the Calcutta Dock System. The entrance to the dock was to be through a tidal basin about 600 ft by 650 ft, and from the tidal basin to the river were two entrances, one 80ft wide and the other 60 ft. Generally, the gates would open about two hours before high-tide when the water in the river and tidal basin would be at the same level . The lock was used to let cargo boats in and out at all times of the tide.
