31 Street in Bombay Fort c1860
Fort gate similar or same as church gate seen at the far end — at Bombay.

32 Scotch Church, Court-House, and entrance to the Dock-Yard..

33 This is the church opposite the Lion's Gate on the way towards Asiatic from Regal. — at Bombay.

34 Churchgate station which built in 1870, is named after the street leading out of this gate.

35 During the eighteenth and up to the mid-19th century, Mumbai was a walled city. The city walls had three gates, and Church Gate, named after St. Thomas Cathedral, Mumbai was one of the gates. The gate was situated near the present day location of Flora Fountain. In the mid-19th century, the city walls were torn down to aid in the expansion program. — at Bombay.

36 View from Colaba Reclamation.. see Rajabai Tower in the distance.Once upon a time, it was so close to the sea. — at Bombay.

37 ‘Khada Parsi’ or ‘Standing Parsi’ in English is almost 40 feet tall and 150 year old cast iron structure and bronze statue of Shet Cursetjee Manockjee that was built in 1860s by his youngest son Manockjee Cursetjee, by spending almost a lakh of rupees then. Manockjee, known as a reformer in education sector, is responsible for founding one of the first schools for girls in Mumbai in 1863, now called Alexandra Girls English Institution, located in South Mumbai. — at Bombay.

38 Peak hour at Bombay Central. One can see atleast 6 persons in the main hall and ghostly traces of two more. — at Bombay.

39 Watsons Hotel, now known as Esplanade Mansion stands tall but almost dilapidated at Kala Ghoda now. But, look at this hotel in its prime! What views of Bombay harbour! This photo is from the 1880s; the only other building at that time in the area was the Sailors' Home (now Maharashtra State Police HQ) in the distance. The wide road you see is the Esplanade; and hence the name of the hotel. The patch of land on the right of the photo, by the sea, is where the Taj Mahal Palace and Towers eventually came up - but that was not until 1903. Before that, for more than 30 years, Watsons Hotel was the numero uno establishment in the city. Mark Twain stayed here; Kipling wrote about it, and the earliest screening of the Cinematographe in India by the Lumiere Brothers was in this hotel (just one week after it was first screened in Paris). — at Bombay.

42 Sailors Home c1900.
