|Content and context|
279x220mm. General view of the Chepauk Palace, situated on the Marina to the east of Government House. This was formerly the residence of the Nawab of the Carnatic, but on the death of the last of that line the property was escheated to the Government and became the offices of the Board of Revenue. The area at the left, formerly the zenana, became the Madras College of Engineering and additions in Indo-Saracenic style were later made by R.F. Chisholm. The original palace was probably designed by Paul Benfield in the 1760s.
