Duke Of Edinburgh At Parel Station Bombay – Old Print
This is an 1867 Print, a clipping from The Illustrated London News (newspaper). And is about the Duke of Edinburgh departing from the Parel Station Bombay, now Mumbai. The title reads- Departure of The Duke of Edinburgh From The Parell Station of The Great Indian Peninsular Railway. The Duke refers to Prince Alfred, the second son of Queen Victoria who had toured India in 1867.

The railway station was under the Great Indian Peninsular Railway (GIPR) in the British era. It is now on the Central Line (Central Railway). Parel is in the heart of Mumbai. See the empty fields that it was once in the past. Noticeable is the British flags flying at the station.
