Plate eighteen from James Hunter's 'Picturesque Scenery in the Kingdom of Mysore'. In the eighteenth century Bangalore was a fortified town, hence this view of the 'Third Delhi Gate', which would have faced north towards Delhi. In the early 19th Century the cantonment of Bangalore was used to house the British garrison, as the weather was cooler, and the incidence of malaria was lower than it was at other camps such as Srirangapattnam. By the end of the 19th century Bangalore was a well established and flourishing garrison town.
