Darogha Ubbas Alli was a 19th-century Indian engineer and photographer. In the 1870s, following his retirement as a municipal engineer in Lucknow, Alli began photographing the city and its surroundings. He published fifty of these photographs in an album called The Lucknow Album in 1874. In 1880, he produced another photographic album, An Illustrated Historical Album of Rajas and Taaluqdars of Oudh, comprising images of the landed gentry of Oudh.
