Tollinton Market

One of the earliest Raj buildings on the Mall, Tollinton Market, according to the excellent guide by Thornton and Kipling “was hastily constructed for the Punjab Exhibition of 1864, and was not intended to be permanent; but want of funds has prevented hitherto the erection of a more suitable structure.” At its entrance stood the famous cannon Zamzammah, which was brought there from its previous location, near the Delhi gate. The exhibition displayed both specimens of the antiquities, arts and manufactures' of the Punjab and specimens of 'its raw products, vegetable, mineral and animal. The Exhibition was officially opened by Sir Robert Montgomery, the Lt. Governor. Later, it became the most important municipal market outside the Old City selling fresh fruit, vegetables and other consumable.

Nice! And I think Pakistan is much cleaner than India. Our markets stink.
