Footnotes

  • Original Sketches in the Punjaub was compiled from drawings by an anonymous female artist who accompanied her husband, an army officer, on his posting to Lahore in around 1851. Thirteen of the twenty views depicted Lahore. Her identity remained mysterious when they were published in London, and remains so. See F. S. Aijazuddin, Lahore: illustrated views of the 19th Century, 1991, pp. 7, and 54-58, nos. 18-20.
