Taj Mahal Hotel, Bombay, from the 1970's or early 1980's. One Premier Safari taxi can be seen. These were also used to commute between Poona and Bombay on a shared passenger basis during then.

Is this a 1930 picture? Many cars in this picture seem to be from late 30s to late 40s

Some cars seem also to be from the early - Fifties.

Note the absence of any Dukkar FIAT- The Millecento was launched sometime around 1954. Morris taxies are present I think.

So- that pretty much seals the date to around 1952-53ish.

Pic has been taken off T-BHP. Has been discussed in detail here.

My bad.

I didn't realize the cars, and wasn't sure if this had been posted in team-bhp. Apologies sir !

Dear Anjan - you can see that the Premier Safari taxi in the picture does not have bumper guards. This was because the tailgate would touch the guards during opening. In some Premier Safaris, the whole bumper with guards was fitted "ulta" to enable the tailgate to open! .

Well, those were lovely days, I still remember that my father used to park our Standard10 (BMC8582) and then our Fiat (BMC9291) all the way upto the Gateway of India and then we school going kids used to play there! Alas, its all over now. Sad! .

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

This amazing shot is of the Coloba reclamation area, though the detail of the car is too small, it is probably an early 1900's car.

Can we identify the buildings and the make of the car ?

General Election Scenes in Delhi (Jan. 1952).A lady worker of the Shri Durga Das, a candidate form New Delhi parliamentary Constituency comes out of the car to canvass votes for Shri Durga Das.
The car is probably a Hindustan 10? Looks large though.
