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."

@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.

I can't immediately identify the car, but the bonnet 'sashes' should be a tell tale sign. Auburn perhaps?
Came across some more here.

Another pic of what is probably the same Auburn

Old Madras. Take a left at Spencers and toddle into the cool environs of the Connemara.
Beautiful city. Now made unbearable by the sheer force of numbers of people and vehicles and pollution...
