Description

For the mail, and many passengers, Calcutta, the 'City of Palaces', marked the end of the long journey by both sea and land. The overland route remained the quickest way to reach India but the opening of the Suez Canal, some twenty years later, would revolutionise the way Egypt was crossed.
