Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 5
The Husainabad clock tower, built at the expense of local land barons (taluqdars) to commemorate George Couper, Henry Lawrence's aide-de-camp during 1857 and, much later, the first person to hold the position (from 1880 to 1887) of Lt. Governor of the United Provinces. Couper had been a strong supporter of the landlords, 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.
