Removing The Cobwebs: Crawford Marke

Crawford Market, Bombay


Removing the cobwebs revealed this old picture of Crawford Market in Bombay. You can see the scratches of the film.

I shall not remove them. I shot this one, using my beloved Olympus OM-2n. Brilliant camera.

The market is now called Jyotirao Phule Market, officially. However, if you want to get there, ask for Crawford Market. That is what everyone calls it.

It is a fascinating market, and one of the landmarks of Bombay.


  1. Do you have any more pictures of the market, Rajiv? You can see a clock tower there. Interesting how there are clock towers in every country in the world, each with its own individual architecture. Perhaps a tribute to the importance of time?

    1. I think so, yes… Time is what we live by… Except, in one aspect of Shiva, he transcends time.
      I have lots of of photos of the market
