Notes Plate twelve from '24 Views in Hindostan by William Orme'. This picture is based on an original painted by Francis Swaine Ward (1736-94), and probably depicts the Nawab of Bengal's palace at Anupshahr (U.P.) in the mid to late eighteenth century. Anupshahr became an important town for the British East India Company because it was the northernmost point for shipping traffic on the River Ganges, and the location of an East India Company factory.
