Pydownie (Mohammed Ali Road) (Code: 009) – Mounted Photo Print


$ 50$ 80

Mohammed Ali Road is a stretch between the junctions of Crawford Market and Mandvi Post Office. This vital artery of the city’s road network is named after the late freedom fighters, Maulana Mohammed Ali and Shaukhat Ali.

The street was also known as Pydownie Street thanks to a British perversion of the word ‘Pydhonie’, which literally translates as ‘a place where feet are washed’. This probably was the first portion of the land permanently reclaimed from the sea. The ‘foot wash’ area can be recognised as a small creek that formed during high tide between the islands of Mazgaon and Bombay.
