Scope and Contents

271x210mm. View of one of the buildings at the Alambagh, a pleasure garden of the Kings of Oudh a few miles south of the city. The building seen here is largely European in style, but with some Indian motifs, such as the small multifoil arches set over the doors.

It was taken early on by the British who maintained a fortified post and hospital in the grounds.
