Creator's description


Allahabad, India. Our story begins with the end of the British Raj, symbolized by this pedestal without a statue. Let us take a look at some of the things left behind by the British that still evoke memories of the period of their rule. This building is the Public Library of Allahabad, built in the style known as Victorian Gothic.
Bonar, Andrew Graham
