A picture of Bombay of 1968 vintage posted by a FB friend. The place looks a bit familiar.

Excellent! See the height of the footpath, the space for walking and the quality of construction. Compare that to today and we will realize why our cities are going down the drain.

This has happened because today politicians who run our cities come from far flung hinterlands. They are not bothered if they reduce our cities into villages. This is a failure on our part that we were not able to develop the hinterlands of our great country and build new cities to curb migrations. Migrations will happen and standards will keep dropping as civic administration is just too burdened with maintaining the basics. Point in case is Bombay. What we were. What we are and Where are we going? Sad!

Gateway of India, Bombay

Attachment 554763
Haji Ali, Mahim , Bombay

I live at Hajiali. Considering the state it is in today, I had forgotten how beautiful it used to look.

People tell me that I live in a wonderful location and I wondered what was beautiful about it. Thanks for reminding me.

What is also observed that all lanes are marked properly with arrow markers on the ground. Also if you look at the island on the right, towards Tardeo Road, you will see a white & yellow light pole. This used to mark the corner of the island with a diagonal arrow pointing downward.

Once again, thanks Anjan

Hi.
This just maybe the Bandbox branch on Dr.Annie Besant Road Worli.This cant be Churchgate or Kemp's corner as that would have more traffic.
That area had wide footpaths and roads.
If I could see the next shops(the corner place looks like the old restaurant Seven Heavens, I maybe wrong) clearer maybe I could guess the location.
Regards

An old photograph of the Dadar Railway Station (1975). The Fiat taxis (neatly queued up in a line) and a few Ambassadors apart from a Matador (or Tempo Viking ?) and the two postal Dodge parcel vans are among the automobiles spotted.

Traffic density has increased, and so have the type of cars seen. Maybe the automobile policy kept some of the older cars alive.

A stunning picture. I now pass this everyday to work, and its instantly recognisable. I'm just wondering why so many cars are parallel parked along marine drive? All the offices are a fair distance away (did Nariman Pt exist in 1963?) The promenade is empty, so it isn't casual walkers either.

Now we only see one or two Dodges regularly on Marine Drive To see bulldogji on his daily commute certainly cheers up my day.

I believe this picture was posted earlier in the thread too - and someone mentioned that the reason why there were so many cars parked there was because there was a cricket match at the Wankhade.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Wrong!
In 1965 there was no Wankhede stadium. Even Nariman Point was not existing, they started the reclamation in the 1970's.
And yes, there are more photos taken from this location in different times, I can see before me the pic with the white convertible. Its somewhere on this forum.
Wankhede stadium was inaugurated in 1974 or so.
