See my post- The Outskirts Of Delhi Jama Masjid – Old Print 1800s.
The city contains so much of immense interest. It was first started with a walled city called Shahjahanabad in 1639. When Shah Jahan shifted the Mughal capital from Agra. And rechristened by the British to its present name. The book is well illustrated with photos, sketches and maps.
