Aerial View of Mumbai – Old Photo Postcard 1920
This old 1920 photo postcard shows the aerial view of Bombay, now Mumbai. The iconic Gateway of India and Taj Mahal Hotel is visible in the foreground. The Bombay Yacht Club is also visible, right at the back is possibly the Marine Drive. In between is the Fort area and visible is the Prince of Wales Museum, Rajabai Clock Tower, High Court, etc.
