View of the building from the rear, partly obscured by trees, photographed by Reymond Hervey De Montmorency in 1867. La Martiniere (also known as Constantia) was built by the frenchman, Claude Martin (1735-1800) in 1795, though he died before its completion in 1802. This example of European architecture later influenced the developement of hybrid Indo-European architecture in Lucknow in the 19th century. Initially designed as a country house, it is used as a school for boys. The column designed by J.P. Parker is seen in the background on the right.
