Remains from factory towns in coastal Andhra: The Collectorate
The collectorate was the building where the business of the collector for a district was transacted. It also served as the symbolic apex of British power in the area. It was the point to which Indians turned if they sought any type of action from Government. The pictures below are from the Krishna District Collector's Office. In fact it is a large compound with many buildings. The third photo is of the records building situated behind the main structure.
