The Residency showing the room in which Sir Henry Lawrence was killed, Lucknow

Description

Abstract:
Formerly occupied by Sir Henry Lawrence, Chief Commissioner of Oudh, at the outbreak of the mutiny, the Residency became the last defended place for the British. The building was crammed with soldiers and civilians. "There is not one hole or corner where one can enjoy an instant's privacy," wrote one lady in her journal. The posed figure on the far right stands in front of the room where Lawrence was killed.
Notes:
Mounted in album 26 x 37 cm.
London, Marlborough Rare Books, 1956
