Oriental Scenery/Part 2/Plate 6

No. VI.


Cheringhee is situated on the east side of the Esplanade, and, though formerly separated, may now be considered as making a part of the town of Calcutta. The houses, which are of brick, stuccoed, and afterwards coloured, are inhabited by opulent English gentlemen, and are well constructed to counteract, as much as possible, the inconveniences of so hot a climate.
