: c. 1840 - c. 1940
: The photographs in this series are from the collection of Sir Sidney Sitwell. Two of the albums (2003/071/1/1/2 and 2003/071/1/1/3) were collated by him during his time in the Far East, and comprise a mixture of souvenir photographs purchased from studios of the period and images featuring himself, colleagues and Bank of Bengal branches. The few loose photographs in 2003/071/1/1/5 follow a similar theme. The Victoria Memorial Album (2003/071/1/1/4) is a souvenir album presumably purchased by Sitwell, a resident of Kolkata for a number of years. The Sitwell family album (2003/071/1/1/1), featuring photographs dating back to around 1840, is presumed to have come into Sir Sidney's possession from his uncle or grandmother.
