This Morris was in Mumbai, again around 1935 or bit later.
Apparently the agent was active, there seem to have been many cars.
Strange number plate, though.

The first picture is taken with Pattergatti behind the photographer,on right is the the Devan ki deodi drawaza. This piture shows the roads to be nice wide, unfortunately now the same road has become narrow thanks to encroachments.

Though it may not be exactly the same as Harit's picture, shown below is an interesting piece from a 1934 publication.

A street scene in Mumbai. Can anyone guess where is this? There are some iconic sightings in this picture.

That's CHOWPATTY and I think the snap is taken from the CCD building or the hospital which is there

You think right.
It is Chowpatti indeed, in those days everything looked so different, and clearly not so populated.
The encircled car is a Ponton. The encircled structure on the roof is a Mercedes star which used to rotate. I think it has been removed.
The skyline is the most striking, trees are seen and no concrete. The tank in the center of the sky line used to supply water for Malabar Hill. I think that is has been knocked down, in my opinion that was a Heritage structure

The photo may have been taked from the last building in that line, where there is that famous ice cream shop and a restaurant. The Hospital you are referring to may be Saifee which is on Marine Lines, not Marine Drive.

Cheers harit
