Old Lahore

Description As the title suggests, it is a historical and descriptive account of the city of Lahore as it was in the early decades of twentieth century during the British Colonial rule. It contains the nostalgic memories of a highly placed serving British army officer of the major landmarks, educational institutions, sprawling gardens, markets. The second part traces the history of this city from its foundation through the reigns of Khiljis, Lodhi kings, Mughal emperors, Afghan invaders, Sikh rule up to the British period. The account besides being fairly detailed based on the eye witness observations of the later period Lahore, also contains scholarly survey of its historical past by a fellow Britisher. The whole volume thus presents a panoramic view of the splendid city as well as its rich cultural heritage. The city is presented as a repository of the Mughal, Sikh and Modern British architecture and the sociological diversity of its residents. The description is gripping, informative and expression fluent and racy.[edit]
