Title: Shipping off Madras.
Description: Madras was well-placed to ship cottons to the East Indies, and like other Company posts, it soon attracted Indian weavers, workers, merchants and bankers to service the trade. The Coromandel coast was famous for the quality of its textiles, and English cloth manufacturers were unable to compete until the early 19th century.
Creator: Adam Callander (fl.1780-1811).
Date: 1780
Credit line: National Maritime Museum, London
