Photograph from the Curzon Collection: 'Presented with feelings of friendship and sincere admiration to Lord Curzon of Kedleston, Viceroy and Governor-General of India, by H.H. Rasulkhanji, Navab Junagadha. 1900', of the Reay Gate, Clock-Tower and Bahauddin Buildings at Junagadh, Gujarat, taken by the travelling commercial photographer F. Nelson during the 1890s. In the mid to late 19th century Junagadh was developed and improved with the construction of a series of new palaces, public buildings and parks, notably during the reign of the Nawab Mahabat Khan II (ruled 1851-1882). The Reay Gate dates from this period and is one of the city gates. It is set within a large, arcaded two-storey crescent with a central portico and clock-tower designed in an Indo-Saracenic style.
