One of the Cap’s many adventures – Bristol! Lovely city.

Dat fella, immortalised to dee right, is Rajah Rammohun Roy. He was an Indian religious, social, and educational reformer who challenged traditional Hindu culture and indicated the lines of progress for Indian society under British rule.
He is sometimes called the father of modern India. And he died in Bristol in 1833. See: Wikipedia.
