Queens Road British Era Bombay, 1900 Postcard
A 1900 postcard view of Queens Road during British Era Bombay (Mumbai). This was once British-era Bombay’s most notable road in the 19th century. Because of its picturesque promenade. However, after Marine Drive was reclaimed and formed in the 1920s, the importance of Queens Road was lost.
The British-era Queens Road lined the Back Bay from Churchgate Station probably up to Gurgaon. Once the Marine Drive came up the Queens Road became a parallel road. It is now known as the Maharishi Karve Road named after the social reformer Maharishsi Dr Dhondo Keshav Karve, known for his upliftment of women’s welfare. Today, the road is dotted with sari, texile shops, and the like.
