Bayne's India Drawings

This collection also includes drawings Bayne made during his years in India. Most of these seem to have been made during sketching tours in 1870 and 1883. Some of Bayne's India drawings reflect an interest in the type of structures he also designed as an architect employed by the East India Railway Company. Towers and water well structures emphasize the engineering aspects of his work in India. Other drawings, such as the elevation and section of the Somnath Gates, and the Tile Decoration from an old tomb, indicate Bayne may have been planning a book on ornamental details in Indian architecture.
