Bombay Cathedral.
A photograph of the Cathedral, Bombay from the 'Vibart Collection of Views in South India' taken by an unknown photographer about 1855.This Church was designed by Gerald Aungier and built between 1672 and 1718. One of the most noteworthy aspects of the Cathedral is the number of monuments contained inside. These include Bacon’s monument to Governor Jonathan Duncan. Duncan himself is buried under a pavement in the nave. In the chancel on the left-hand side is the tomb of General Carnac, Clive’s second-in-command at Plassey.
