Photograph of the Mahomedan, English, Urdu & Gujarati School at Junagadh in Gujarat, taken by the travelling commercial photographer F. Nelson in the 1890s from the Lee-Warner Collection: 'Photographs of Junagadh'. Junagadh State was founded in 1735 by Muhammed Sher Khan Babi (r.1748-1758) and was ruled by his descendents, the Muslim Babi dynasty. Also known as the Mahabat Madrassa, the school was built under the patronage of the Nawab Mahabat Khan II (r.1851-1882), who developed and improved Junagadh with a series of new palaces, civic buildings and parks. This is a view of its arcaded fa├žade, designed in a hybrid style which combines European Gothic and Islamic forms and was used for other new buildings in Junagadh.
