In the late nineteenth century Bombay witnessed a remarkably acceleration in construction activity, especially in public buildings designed explicitly to display the Imperial image. Today these buildings all designed in the Victorian Gothic tradition collectively assert a character for south Bombay that is unique in India.

But more importantly together they perhaps represent the first consciously conceived urban design gestures to be found in colonial India.
