Rare Pictures of Old Bombay

Being a Bombay (Mumbai) ite to the core (born and brought up in this fair city of dreams, it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful and empty the island once used to be. So pristine and peaceful…

The first picture below shows the old Fort of which only a few ruins remain, hidden deep within the market that encircles it. (circa 1826)

Bombay Fort in 1826

This next one is really super cool – first you can see Chowpatty beach from malabar Hill (sketched in 1850) and below you see the modern day Chowpatty – just 160 years down the line!

Chowpatty from Malabr Hill - 1850

Chowpatty now - Queen's Necklace/Marine Drive... barely 160 years later
