Loodianh, on the Sutlej
The Illustrated London News - This Engraving is from a sketch by Captain G. P. Thomas. It shows part of the Cantonment of Loodianah, with the Fort, and a portion of the City. The foreground is the parade, with the huts of the Sepoys' lines; the depositaries of the arms of companies, called "Bells of Arms." In the left distance are shown two officers' bungalows, or thatched houses; next, a terrace-roofed house, with portico, veradha, &c.; the Fort of Phullor, on the Punjaub side of the Sutlej. The large house on the opposite side was successively tenanted by Shah Shoojah, Dost Mohammed, and Shoojahoolmoolk; it has beautifal garden of cypresses and fruit trees. To the right is the Fort of Loodianah; it has a drawbridge to the gate, and a glacis and ditch surround it; the range of barracks rising above the rest, has bomb-proof roofs. The hills on the opposite side of the Sutlej are between 60 and 70 miles distantl and on a very clear day, beyond them are seen the snowy peaks of the higher Himalayas. 26/3/1846
