Photo Feature: Hee Mumbai Majhi: 10 vintage Mumbai shopping street photos

We are very pleased  to be a part of Mumbai’s vibrant shopping scene adding our little bit to make the experience better. For the Mumbaikar who is used to running  around   through out the day, time is a very precious commodity , one that cannot be wasted in the wrong shops bargaining over products which may be available at much better prices elsewhere .

However, was the Mumbai shopping scene always so vibrant?  Perhaps not, if one were to look at  photographs of some vintage Mumbai shops & shopping streets.

Here’s a look at Vintage Mumbai… or Bombay from the yesteryears
