Visions of the Past, II

 To give a complete picture of the Residency and perhaps clarify a few points as to the actual position of some of the buildings, the following drawings are quite useful:

Starting at Bailey Guard:

The Cawnpore Battery or South Angle

Brigade Mess

The Commissariat

The Church or North Angle

The River and Redan

It is easier to envision the past with actual buildings than with crumbling ruins.
