A photograph of Lal Bagh, Bangalore from the 'Vibart Collection of Views in South India' taken by an unknown photographer about 1855. The Lal Bagh gardens were created in the late 18th Century by the Rajas of Mysore Haider Ali Khan, (c.1722 - 1782) and his son, Tipu Sultan (1753 -1799). This royal retreat was stocked with many rare and exotic varieties of plants and trees brought from Persia, Afghanistan and France. The conservatory (1840) was reputedly modelled on London’s Crystal Palace.
