This is plate 26 from William Hodges' book 'Select Views in India'. It shows a ghat (landing) next to the river Yamuna at Etawah. Located in the modern state of Uttar Pradesh, Etawah is at the top of a high bank of the river, which is cut by a series of ravines caused by the heavy seasonal rainfall. The town was important to the Mughal emperors, but at the time of Hodges' visit, it was under the control of the Nawabs of Oudh. In 1801 the British East India Company laid claim to it. Hodges found Etawah "large, but very wretched, having but two tolerable houses in it".
