Fascinating Photos Capture Street Scenes of Mumbai in the Mid-1990s

Mumbai, also known as Bombay — the official name until 1995, is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra and the de facto financial centre of India. It is the second-most populous city in India after Delhi and the eighth-most populous city in the world.

Mumbai is the centre of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, the sixth most populous metropolitan area in the world. It lies on the Konkan coast on the west coast of India and has a deep natural harbor. In 2008, Mumbai was named an alpha world city.

Mumbai is the financial, commercial, and the entertainment capital of India. The city houses important financial institutions and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations. It is also home to some of India’s premier scientific and nuclear institutes. The city is also home to Bollywood and Marathi cinema industries. Mumbai’s business opportunities attract migrants from all over India.

A series of slides from MartinJSnelling mainly featured Mumbai’s homeless and street children. The photos were taken by James Sturgess while visiting his wife’s family.
