4 Antique Photos Of Bombay Coastline 1905
These are four antique photos of the Bombay Coastline from 1905. Two photos measure- 6¼ x 4¾ inches, the rest measure- 5½ x 3¼ inches. Three photos are taken from a sailing boat one of them is from the Bombay Royal Yacht Club side. Three of the photos show the coastline of Bombay, now Mumbai. And visible are the Taj Hotel, Greens Hotel (now the new wing Taj Tower), Royal Bombay Yacht Club, Rajabai Clock Tower, and so on.
See my posts- Antique Taj Mahal Palace Hotel Bombay 1907 Advertisement., Antique Photo of Royal Bombay Yacht Club 1900., and Vintage Postcard Bombay University & Rajabai Clock Tower. The photos also show Apollo Bunder where the future Gateway of India would be built. The last photo also shows a portion of the Apollo Bunder. See my post- Antique Print Bombay Apollo Bunder & Harbour 1880. Visible in two of the sailing boats are European men and women most likely members of the Yacht Club.
Sailing boats lying beside the Apollo Bunder are also likely to be from the Royal Bombay Yacht Club. Reflecting on Bombay, now Mumbai from a 1900 view, it had come a long way from a cluster of seven islands to a united sophisticated megapolis. That was truly amazing.
Did you know- since Portugal controlled Bombay initially, they called it in Portuguese Bom Baim or good little bay which got corrupted to Bombay by the British.
