Ex-Miltary Secretariat (location), Esplanade Row East, Kolkata-
“Built in the year 1909 formerly known as Ordnance Building, when Calcutta was still the capital of the British Raj, this building once again reminds all that the British wanted to create in Calcutta, a city on the lines of their beloved London. The wide verandahs and recessed rooms, with a large central court yards are concessions and improvisations, made for the difference in climatic conditions between the two cities.”- Read an internet source, I couldn’t agree more!
That’d be me!!
