Plate 1 from 'Sketches Illustrating the Manners & Customs of the Indians and Anglo Indians', published in 1842, after sketches made by William Tayler (1808–1892) who entered the service of the East India Company in 1829, and according to DNB 'his official career had been uneventful, though he made friends in high quarters by his skill as a portrait painter, and some enemies by a turn for caricature.' His actions during the mutiny enforced his retirement in 1859.
