This view from Mhow Arsenal Gate, from the Lee-Warner Collection: 'Scenes and Sculptures of Central India, Photographed by Lala Deen Diyal, Indore.', was taken by Deen Dayal in 1882. It is a view looking across open ground towards cantonment buildings. Mhow is sitated 22 km from Indore. It became an important British cantonment after the Treaty of Mandasor (1818) with Malhar Rao Holkar II. It is built on a grid pattern with a church, three chapels, a library, an arsenal and a theatre and is a typical example of colonial planning.
