Postcards from Bombay

1903. Designed by S. K. Vaidya and D. N. Mirza

Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. 1903, S. K. Vaidya and D. N. Mirza. Dalrymple holes up here but does not enjoy it ‘as much as I might have done, because I was recovering from the hepatitis I had contracted in the South Seas’.

To the right of the picture, the Taj Mahal Tower. 1973, Melton Bekker. ‘I regretted the modern excrescence that ruined the hotel’s architectural unity.’
