Here are some more Marine Drive pics.

To have so many cars parking must mean that there was a huge event somewhere. Then I remembered the 1964 Eucharistic Congress held in Bombay where the Pope visited. But that was in December, the magazine was of August, so there must have been another event. Any ideas?

It is indeed the Parliament House! How difficult it would be today to be able to capture just one car in a photograph!
