1940s Addressbook





Home    Sitemap    Reference    Last updated: 11-March-2009



If there are any technical problems, factual inaccuracies or things you have to add,

then please contact the group under info@calcutta1940s.org






If you remember a shop, or school, or restaurant from you time in Calcutta, if you like to know the address of the hospital you were born in, or the Church your parents got married you can look them up here. 

The addresses are correct (in the main) for the year 1940s but if you know some which have changed or got any other additions to make then please mail us (with as much detail as possible) at: calcutta1940s@yahoo.com

Also we have to admit that most of the addresses reflect the fact that we got them from a directory for western visitors to the city and thus do not really reflect Indian life as led by Indians.  For instance there are many churches listed but no temples or mosques.   We would very much like to add addresses relevant to Indians to the list so again let us know if you have any and pass them onto us at: calcutta1940s@yahoo.com .

Please note that many of the streetnames in the address have since changed.  A list of name changes can be found in Streetatlas
