Default Pictures of Dhaka or Dacca from 19th & early 20th Centuries

A very nice presentation/collection of pictures of what Dacca was like in the late 19th and early 20th century. A friend of mine has emailed me the following pics and I thought I would share them with you

Hard to recognize the beautiful town Dacca was even in the late 1970s to the urban eyesore it has become today. Btw, everything changed for worse or better in the last 100+ years but the villagers! So sad!

Enjoy!

P.S. Mods pls merge this to "pics of Bangladesh" thread if you think its worth merging.

Ramna Gate-1901 (where present day Doyel Chattar is located


Chawk Bazar-1904 (Beside this road today's Sheikh Burhanuddin College is located. We know this road as Nazimuddin Road today)


Dhaka College-1904


Dhakeswari Mandir-1904


More to come

Dear BCers, please post rare old photos of Dhaka city or of any other city of Bangladesh you have or find in this thread. This way we can make a picture archive of our good old Dhaka

I've been a member of that group. There are also some fabulous pics of Dhanmondi and Dhaka in the 60's. Esrar Bhai rocks there.

thoroughly enjoyed it.

that "other bangladeshi" under the "educated" one is RIPPED. what the hell does he do for a living/eat?

why can our fast bowlers develop a physique like that? i mean they work out all the time? shoot, i'd just be happy if mash had my physique...

as long as he bowls the way he has been in ODIs, i guess we're fine.

the guy's not really ripped, he just doesn't have fat on his body. The veins that you can see on his arms are because he probably has a fat percentage of less than 10%. If you measured his biceps, you'd probably find that the are really thin which incidentally gives one the impression that he's been working out. But overall, the guy's really thin and emaciated and has very little lean muscle. his body weight is probably much less than a man his height and age should be. In short, he's not healthy and is probably nutritionally deficient.

Incidentally, you're absolutely spot on about the villagers Navarene. Absolutely nothing has changed for them. a century of "development" has totally left them behind.
