Bombay Place Names and Street Names contains a compilation of place and street names in the Bombay (Mumbai) of a century ago, with fascinating explanations of their origins. Some of these have been traced to local families, legends, historical/official figures, and urban myths or are based simply on anecdotal and etymological accounts from the nineteenth to early twentieth centuries. Some streets are named after trees and temples while others are named after princes and commoners, mills and agiaris, professions and markets. This engrossing book by Samuel Townsend Sheppard is a noteworthy historical documentation of one of India’s premier cities. It promises an enticing journey into a Bombay that has transformed beyond recognition. This updated edition is annotated with the changes to street names and is a must-read for everyone interested in history and etymology, and especially for those who call Mumbai home.
