Notes on the Geography of Northern India: Lucknow of the Europeans
A few of the British relics in Lucknow apart from the iconic Residency.
The River Gomti. Ferryman below.
Ready and willing, though there's a bridge just upstream.
Here it is in fact. A famous Iron Bridge from 1845 was demolished in the 1950s.
The Husainabad clock tower, built at the expense of local land barons (properly, the taluqdars) to commemorate George Couper, Henry Lawrence's aide-de-camp in 1857 and, much later, the first person to hold the position (from 1877 to 1882) of Lt. Governor of the Northwestern Provinces and Chief Commissioner of Oudh. Couper was a strong supporter of the land barons, and when he declined a memorial in the form of a statue of himself, the landowners paid instead for this clock in his memory. The clock survives, but memory of Couper has grown thin.
Early in the day.
The Post Office tower rises a bit threateningly behind a kiosk itself fairly threatening a fragile Mahatma, as much a figure of the British era as of the more recent past.
Another kiosk, this one originally with a bronze statue of Queen Victoria.
