Photographer's Note

After posting a Front and a Side view, I now have an angular view of this beautiful building.
What is prominent here is the "Minar" where the Moghul and the Rajasthan influence is clear.
The Architect entrusted with the design was W. Emerson. A pupil of William Burges. The man appointed as an assistant to Emerson was Vincent J. Esch. A generation younger than Emerson, Esch had like him, gone out to India at the start of his career and in 1899 he was appointed Assistant Engineer in the Bengal Nagpur Railway, a job which gave him much practical experience in large-scale construction and costings. In the New Year of 1902, Emerson engaged him to prepare a sketch of his original design for the Victoria Memorial.
