Scope and content
This view shows two figures on a road between a line of structures (dwellings?) and a river. An old Moslem fort is in the background. Of Lady Falkland's watercolours, this is the only one in the album executed using a broad range of colours and with the wash covering the entire surface of the support. Lady Falkland travelled with her husband when he was governor of Bombay (1848-53). She mentions Chakun in her book Chow-Chow as an "exceedingly pretty"
village and discusses its history (1857. London: Hurst and Blackett, vol 1, p 298). Chakun is on the Deccan plain.
