Photographer's Note

A lonely scene at Lahore Railway Junction. You can see a tired worker at the right, thinking something deep.

Lahore Junction station was constructed by Mian Mohammad Sultan Chughtai, a former official of the Mughal Empire, between 1859-1860. The station served as the headquarters for the Punjab Railway and later would serve as the northern terminus of the Scinde, Punjab & Delhi Railway, which connected the port city of Karachi to Lahore. It was built in the style of a medieval castle to ward off any potential future uprisings, as seen in the 1857 War of Independence, with thick walls, turrets, and holes to direct gun and cannon fire for defense of the structure.[2] It remains a lasting legacy of the extensive railway network established during the British Raj (WIKI)
