How was life in general for Europeans and Indian natives in Patna (Patliputra)during the East India company rule?

I do know that there was a large opium factory near the banks of the Ganges where opium was produced in large quantities. This opium was transported via sea route to China via Calcutta. Apart from that I have sketchy knowledge on how life was in general in Patna.

References of old Photos / portraits will be greatly appreciated.
