QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–477

A typical Kolkata-style question today.

Sir Stuart Saunders Hogg

Which shopping landmark in one of India’s four original metropolitan cities is named after this man? Additional info: The landmark has seen two blazes – in 1985 and 2011 – and risen from the ashes both times.

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!

Six answers, and all but one correct! This is Sir Stuart Saunders Hogg, whose name was given to Hogg’s Market in erstwhile Calcutta. Kolkata now calls it New Market.
