A calash is a four-seater carriage with a hood, often two-wheeled, used in Lima. Ulloa, Spanish general, explorer, astronomer, colonial administrator, and first Spanish governor of Louisiana, went to Peru as part of the French scientific expedition led by Pierre Bouguer which aimed to measure an arc of the meridian.
Acquired before 1871.
