Photograph of the New Bazaar at Junagadh in Gujarat, taken by F. Nelson in the 1890s. The album is inscribed: “With best compliments from H.H. Rasulkhanji, Nawab of Junagadh (India)” and was formerly in the collection of Sir William Lee-Warner (1846-1912), who served in the Indian Civil Service and was a Member of the Council of India between 1902 and 1912.
This is a view looking down the bazaar, designed as an elegant arcaded classical terrace leading to the huge Gothic arched gateways seen in the distance. The bazaar dates from the reign of Nawab Mahabat Khan II (r.1851-1882), who developed and improved Junagadh by constructing a series of new palaces, public buildings and parks.
