Notes on the Geography of Northern India: Lucknow Residency: Photo 1
The Baillie Guard Gate, built in 1814 by Resident John Baillie to enclose the 33-acre site. The first resident had come in 1775, when the capital of Oudh was shifted from Faizabad to Lucknow. The land belonged to the Nawab of Oudh, who built the buildings, owned them, and was expected to maintain them, at least until 1856, when the last nawab was deposed and the last British resident replaced by a Commissioner.
