Illuminating Bombay In Honor of Queen Victoria-Old 1875 Print
This print is an old page from the French journal “L’Univers Illustre” of 1875. The translation reads- Illuminations in Bombay in honor of the Empress of India. The print measures 16 x 10 inches. The celebration was in honor of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. The image shows the shops and streets of Bombay or Mumbai illuminated for the occasion.

Including wood-cut images of the illumination and celebration in Bombay….” Read more- A history of Jubilees. You can see more of my collections on Bombay in photographs, prints, postcards, etc.
Did you know- in 1877 Victoria added to her the already lengthy title “Empress of India.”
