Malabar Point, Bombay.
Medium: Photographic print
This photograph of Malabar Point, Bombay was taken by an unknown photographer in the 1860s. This was a predominantly rural area until the mid 19th Century when the Parel Road was widened making it more accessible and resulting in a large increase in population. Today the area retains a few surviving colonial bungalows, as well as numerous examples of modern Indian domestic architecture.
