College had been founded by Sir Charles Aitchison in 1886. After an initial
consideration of the mausoleum of Jahangir at Shahdara as a possible site
for the College, the College was located on the main Mall Road (now the
Shahrah-i-Quaid-e-Azam). The design for the exterior of the building was
submitted jointly by J. Lockwood Kipling and Bhai Ram Singh of the Mayo
School of Arts at Lahore (now the National College of Arts), and the plan
for its interior by Col. Swinton Jacob, Chief Engineer, who also designed
the Sandeman hail at Quetta.
This particular sketch was used for the invitation card to the foundation stone laying ceremony of the College, held on 3 November 1886.

building, according to the excellent guide by Thornton and Kipling. 'was
hastily constructed for the Punjab Exbition 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 Zamzama,
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 building is still in use today, as the Tollington municipal market.
