Hello,

Neither of the two photos below show Portuguese colonial architecture.

Cananor - actual Kannur



The photo is taken at Kannur but it actually shows a bomb proof magazine built by the British East India Company after 1797. The bomb proof rests up against the Dutch Fort walls built on the site of the larger Portuguese fort that was demolished.

There is Portuguese work at Cannanore but it is further towards the south in this fort.

The following gateway is actually at Thalassery or Tellicherry about ten miles south of Kannur. It was built by the British between 1690 and 1720. The two little figures are believed by many locals to be Tipu Sultan's sons.

They are actually some of the very earliest representations of East India Company soldiers from about 1690. I am unaware of any other pictures from this early period of the garrisons of the East India Company settlements.
