Genre: Photograph

This photograph of the Dilkusha from 'The Lucknow Album: containing a series of fifty photographic views of Lucknow,' was taken by Darogha Abbas Ali c.1874. Dilkusha was built by Nawab Saadat Ali Khan (r.1798-1814) as a hunting lodge. 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.
