Notes on the Geography of Northern India: Lucknow Residency: Photo 2
"The Residency is the spot which all Englishmen will wish to visit first in Lucknow." So speaks colonial-era editions of Murray's Handbook for India. Its location may have been selected by Claude Martin, who had been, among other things, a land surveyor for the East India Company.
There are no known photos of the Residency before its destruction in 1857. Its restoration would therefore be a work of supposition. The Archaeological Survey's report for 1902/3 states in any case that restoration was not the Survey's goal: instead, its "idea has been to avoid all outward semblance of patching up a ruin."
