Bombay Place-Names and Street-Names: An Excursion Into the By-Ways of the History of Bombay City (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Bombay Place-Names and Street-Names: An Excursion Into the by-Ways of the History of Bombay City
That proverb has not always been borne in mind in Bombay, as the following pages will show. There has not often been noticeable here the touch of names, though many legends and not a little history have been handed down from generation to generation in the place-names and street-names of the city. But the majority of names are dull, unimaginative, and reminiscent of dull people of no account. There is little here comparable with the fanciful beauty of many names in Burma.
