I am adding three photos showing the Great Banyan tree in Calcutta. The first shows my father on 25 May 1947 with what must have been a new Rover P2 Sports Saloon car taken at the Great Banyan Tree. He cannot have been in India very long when the photo was taken.
The second photo shows myself climbing on the Banyan tree taken around 1964.
The final photo shows the tree from a distance and it is huge covering around 2.5 acres with several thousand stems, I understand that it is believed to be around 250 years old.
