Photograph of the Kashmir Gate at Delhi, taken by Lala Deen Dayal in the 1890s, from the Curzon Collection: 'Views of places proposed to be visited by Their Excellencies Lord & Lady Curzon during Autumn Tour 1902'. Lord Curzon served as Viceroy of India between 1899 and 1905. The Kashmir Gate is one of the northern gates in the city walls of what is now known as Old Delhi, originally the city of Shahjahanabad built in the 17th century by the Mughal emperor Shan Jahan (r.1628-58). The Kashmir Gate was built in 1835 by Major Robert Smith and was made into a double gateway in 1857 at the time of the Indian Uprising. This gate was blown up when the British retook Delhi during the Indian Uprising of 1857.
