This view from the roof of General Outram's headquarters
shows a position captured by General Havelock's field force
from rebel Indians. Havelock's battalion arrived to relieve the
garrison at Lucknow on 25 September 1857. The river Gomti is
pictured to the left portion of the image; the large house next to
it is Dil Aram. Opposite is the Moti Mahal and the Shah Najaf.
Immediately in front of the low parapet in the foreground is the
Judicial Commissioner's House, an important and exposed post
of the garrison, here displaying the damage from several rebel
mines. Beyond it are the clock tower, the jail, the Chattar Manzil
and Farhad Baksh's. The large tomb to the right is that of
Saadat Khan, Nawab of Avadh; the small tomb is his mother's.
Both are within the Kaiser Bagh enclosure and were held by the
Indian rebels. In the distance are the large houses, La
Martiniere and Khurshid Manzil.
