#Boston2Bombay - Early American Visitors To Mumbai by Dr Jenny Rose: Talk 84

Shortly after the Treaty of Paris formally concluded the Revolutionary War between Britain and America, American ships began to sail to the coasts of India to establish trading links. Most of these initial arrivals came from ports in New England, but also from Philadelphia and New York. These early merchant mariners were followed by American missionaries, diplomats and travel writers. At our Online Talk #Boston2Bombay, researcher and scholar Dr Jenny Rose highlights some of these visitors’ impressions of the places and people they encountered in and around Bombay in the late 18th- and early 19th-centuries.

The talk link will be shared a couple of hours before the event.
