This page is  a result of Ms.Sarita Armstrong, resident of UK who came across some uploads I had made of our palaces in You Tube. She then discovered that the Poosi  palace was designed by her great grand father, William Pogson.She traced the sketch from one of his manuscripts and found that he thought this "was one of his best".
