Early 19th Century Picture of the Lahore Fort Armoury

Here we have another rare piece of Sikh/Indian history. An actual picture taken of the Lahore Fort Armoury. Before the British conquest of Punjab the fort of Lahore was the centre of the Sikh Kingdom of Maharaja Runjeet Singh “The Lion of Punjab”. The fort eventually came under the British and was later decommissioned. We have not come across another picture of the Lahore Armoury, even in the Book published by the V&A titled “Arts of the Sikh Kingdoms”.
