The Lady Dufferin Victoria Hospital, located on Amherst Street, was designed by the firm of Ballardie, Thompson, and Matthews and completed in 1937.

* Re Kolkata
As we’re now moving on to that city, I should mention that the name Calcutta went out in 2001 as the official city name and therefore I’ll be using Kolkata, just as I used Mumbai, formerly Bombay. Names were redone to better reflect actual local pronunciation, rather than used Anglicized versions put in place under Colonial rule.
