I think the second one is the same as this British Library  image

http://www.bl.uk/onlinegallery/onlineex/apac/photocoll/t/019pho0000430s6u00030000.html  "Trimulgherry Entrenchment" which is labelled 1880, photographer photographer Deen Dayal

"This photograph is from the Curzon Collection: 'Views of HH the Nizam's Dominions, Hyderabad, Deccan, 1892'. "

His time in India as a Boy Musician from age 15, with the 1st Battalion, Royal West Kent Regiment in Gough Barracks in the cantonment of Trimulgherry, and time spent at Wellington in the Nilgiri Hills.

Thanks for the posting. A relative I came across some years ago died there in the 1930s. I have been meaning to  do some more research on him.
