Cooum River In Chennai – Old Photo 1880
This is an old 1880 photo of the Cooum River in Madras now Chennai. Once a clean and prominent River flowing through the heart of the city of Madras today a filthy sewage carrier. Shown in this photo is a seemingly clean-looking river with country boats plying a sight impossible to see now. See also a man fishing on the side and farming on the banks of the river once a common sight.
Did you know- the Cooum River derives its name from a village of the same name from where it originates 70 km away from Chennai.
