    Bio / His Notes: 
    The Elphinstone Circle was a large garden complex in south Bombay, laid out in 1869 and completed in 1972. With the support of then-governor Lord Elphinstone, the green space known as Bombay Greens was converted into a circle surrounded by buildings, with walkways and trees planted throughout and an ornamental fountain in the center. The whole park was then renamed Elphinstone Circle after the governor. In 1947, the garden was again renamed, this time in honor of Benjamin Horniman, the editor of the Bombay Chronicle and supporter of Indian independence.
    Four albumen prints by an anonymous photographer, mounted contiguously on paper, depicting a panoramic view of the Elphinstone Circle (Horniman Circle Gardens), Bombay (Mumbai).
