[View of the] Residency [Kolhapur].
Medium: Photographic print
View of the British residency at Kolhapur from the Lee-Warner Collection: 'Souvenirs of Kolhapur. Installation of H.H. the Maharajah, 1894' taken by an unknown photographer in 1894. Kolhapur, situated on the banks of the river Panchaganga is the capital city of the former princely state of the same name in Maharashtra, south west India. The town has an ancient history and probably developed around the sacred site of the present day Mahalakshimi temple. The British obtained political suzerainty in 1844 and built the Residency, 1845-48 about two and a half miles north of Kolhapur.
