This picture of a portion of the Vidhana Soudha, Bangalore was probably taken around 1956, when it was close to completion. Found amongst other pictures that dad had preserved, it may have, in fact, been taken by him.
Passing by the rear part of the Vidhana Soudha last morning, I managed to capture a similar portion.
The continuous rain over the past few days had washed the majestic building clean as it peeped out through the lush green around it. Noticably, the carts of 1956 are missing.
