Times Of India, Bangalore 18-07-2016 -

"A Panoramic view of MG Road taken in 1964, Jayaprakash took multiple shots from various angles, and used Photoshop to put them together to make it one frame. Oriental Building, the non-existent Empire theatre and other landmarks are clearly visible in the frame."

Default Re: Madras Day celebrations - Display & talk on Madras' automotive heritage

@Mods: If there is a more appropriate thread for this, please feel free to move it there.

Here are some old pictures of Madras.

- An old picture taken of the Original Spencers that stood there. Wide roads and fewer vehicles. Unruly traffic is not new to Madras (chennai), it appears : )

- A Shell petrol filling station! It appears that share autos are not new to Madras (Chennai) either.

- Madras (probably Mount road) with Tram, Horse and Bullocks (on the wrong side of the road). Breaking traffic rules does not seem to be new to Madras (Chennai) as well

This Shell Petrol pump photo looks the same as posted by Vinay.Kamath (post 279).

So, I was wondering whether its Madras (or) Bangalore

The registration plate has "MC" which was in use for Madras.

This may help clarify as well.
