This is an antique albumen print from around 1870, mounted on a contemporary album leaf with titling in contemporary ink.
Curiously, on verso there is another albumen print from around the same time, titled ‘Agra – the Zenana’.
The photograph displays the grandest of the two entrances to the fort. It leads to an inner gate – the Elephant Gate or Hathi Pol. The construction of the fort was begun by the Emperor Akbar in 1565.
