Sewri During British Era Bombay, 1890 Postcard

An old 1890 postcard of Sewri during the British Era in Bombay (Mumbai). Shown are some old British-era dwellings and warehouses. The coast and a portion of mudflats can be seen in the background. Sewri is a small hamlet on the eastern shore of the island of Parel, one of the seven islands of Bombay.

Today, it lies along the eastern fringe of South Mumbai. And is connected with a railway station on the Central Railway Harbour Line. Sewri has a large mangrove swamp and mudflats (wetlands). In 1996, the mangrove swamp was declared an ecological protected area. Since flamingos from other parts of India arrive at the mangroves to breed. The flamingos arrive at the mudflats from October to March every year.

Did you know – the Sewri-Nhava Sheva trans harbour link, which is being planned, may threaten the habitat of the migratory flamingos.
