This photograph of the Dilkusha from the Lee-Warner Collection 'Bombay Presidency' album was taken by John Edward Saché (1870s). Dilkusha was built by Nawab Saadat Ali Khan (r.1798-1814) as a hunting lodge at Lucknow. As late 18th and 19th century Lucknow architecture was notably influenced by European architecture, it is no surprise that this building was based on the English classical baroque style. Dilkusha has a striking resemblence to Seaton Delaval, a house in Northumberland.
