Mayor Sovan Chatterjee and former mayor Subrata Mukherjee at an exhibition in the Calcutta Municipal Corporation headquarters on the occasion of the inauguration of a digital archive. The rare pictures on display are among the hundreds that will be stored, along with significant documents, in the Amol Home Digital Archive. The collections include a photograph of a pensive Gandhiji at Keoratala during Chittaranjan Das’s cremation.
The archive has been named after scholar Amal Home, who used to edit the Calcutta Municipal Gazette when its publication started in 1924.
