Examples of this scarce and highly detailed street plan of Bombay which are held in the British Library were issued with ‘The Times of India Calendar and Directory’ for 1902 and 1905. This is a slightly later edition. The Alexandra Dock was completed in 1914, and the Port’s own railway system was completed in 1915. Our map corresponds with the example received by the Royal Geographical Society Map Room in 1920, described in the Supplement to the Geographical Journal (Vol. 1, No. 8, p. 310).
