Scene in Bombay

Artist: Grindlay, Robert Melville (1786 – 1877) Medium: Aquatint, Coloured. Date: 1826

This is plate 10 from Robert Melville Grindlay’s ‘Scenery, Costumes and Architecture chiefly on the Western Side of India’. Grindlay (1786-1877) was only 17 when he arrived in India in 1803. He served with the Bombay Native Infantry from 1804 to 1820 and during this period made a large collection of sketches and drawings. Grindlay explains that the Bombay ‘Green’ in 1811 was “an irregular area, surrounded by various public buildings and originally intended for the Garrison-Parade; but occupied during the dry season by vast piles of cotton bales, marine stores, and various bulky articles of merchandise.” The main buildings in this image of the Green are the offices of the Governor’s Secretary and the Sudder Adalat, or Court of Appeal. On the right is the theatre. The figure in the centre is a Parsi merchant.
