Old Lahore - Colonial Period

Guys, I'm opening this thread as the treasure of old Lahore pictures is amazing and needs more attention than just one bigger thread. The credit goes to following folks:

About:

Lahore is known as the City of Gardens. Many gardens were built in Lahore during the Mughal era, some of which still survive. The many other gardens and parks in the city include Hazuri Bagh, Iqbal Park, Mochi Bagh, Gulshan Iqbal Park, Model Town Park, Race Course Park, Nasir Bagh Lahore, Jallo Park, Wild Life Park, and Changa Manga, an artificial forest near Lahore in the Kasur district. Another garden is the Bagh-e-Jinnah, a 141-acre (57 ha) botanical garden that houses entertainment and sports facilities as well as a library. Our mission is to promote our culture and raise awareness to protect our heritage.

Charing Cross, renamed, as "Faisal Square" (in Urdu and Punjabi, "Faisal Chowk") on Mall Road,now officially renamed as Shahrah-e-Quaid-e-Azam to honour the founder of the nationLahore is one of the classical examples of urban open spaces laid down during the British Period. It acquired its present form over a century and thus, contains many layers of the nation's history. Despite its historical, architectural and national significance, there is a dearth of available literature pertinent, to it. Documentary search and office of the Chief Architect, Punjab archives provided the relevant material in compiling this research.
1. Historical perspective
Charing Cross is a famous landmark of Lahore, which has witnessed a variety of historical events in the span of more than a century.
In the context of Lahore, for the first time the term was used in a publication by G. R. Elmslie titled "Thirty Five Years in the Punjab". In Lahore, the name Charing Cross, could supposedly be inspired by the historical Charing Cross in London as it was laid and developed during British Rule (1849–1947).
1.1 Alignment of the Mall Road Lahore
The British led to the expansion of Lahore beyond the Walled City to find suitable places for the Imperial army and civilian officers. A new urban network evolved which "comprised roads that wove through or around the existing structures, mosques and tombs, interlinking the centers of power and logistic nodes in the most direct manner available. Every possible effort was made to save the existing trees. Goulding gives a detail resume of the Mall from the time of its evolution in 1851 to its present condition describing that originally there was the one and only Mall, now known as the Lower Mall, extending from the Deputy Commissioner's court to the Multan Road Junction. According to him the Mall running east to west was aligned in 1851 by Lieut-Colonel Robert a Napier, Chief Engineer Public Works Department at a cost of Rs 10,428; who described it as a direct road from Anarkali to Mian Mir. Later, under the personal supervision of Mr. DuCane Smythe, Chief Engineer, THE whole length of the Mall was remodeled on its present lines. Presently, the Mall is popular by two divisions: the track linking Anarkali and fort stations is known as Lower Mall while track linking the Government Secretariat with the Cantonment as Upper Mall (originally called Lawrence Road until 1876). Over the time, the finest public road became an axis of numerous imposing private and public buildings and had all the ingredients of a modern city: restaurants, offices, banks, insurance companies, shopping plazas, hotels, tailoring shops etc.
1.2 Development of the Charing Cross Lahore
Survey Plan of the Charing Cross Ground (1913) indicates that the site of Charing Cross was originally a triangular open space on the Mall and off center the road linking to Ferozepur Road (named as Queens Road and renamed as Sharea Fatima Jinnah). The Queen's statue sat in the center of this triangular space (Figure 1). The open space was not enclosed by any structure except that of Rai Mela Ram's Buildings strategically abutting the Mall and the Egerton Road, renamed as Khalifa Shujauddin Road.

Man I'm tired but pictures are never ending and still heaps on that page. I'm amazed at the level Lahore was a developed city back in 1800 & 1900s. Now it makes sense why english and many pre-partition indian people were obsessed with Lahore.
