Monochrome mania


Watson's Esplanade Hotel, now known as the Esplanade Mansion, is India's oldest surviving cast iron building. It is located in the Kala Ghoda area of Mumbai. Named after its original owner, John Watson, the building was fabricated in England and constructed on site between 1860 and 1863.The hotel was leased on 26 August 1867 for 999 years at the yearly rent of Rupees 92 and 12 annas to Abdul Haq. It was closed in the 1960s and was later subdivided and partitioned into smaller cubicles that were let out on rent as homes and offices. Neglect of the building has resulted in decay and, despite its listing as a Grade II–A heritage structure, the building is now in a dilapidated state.

Weigh yourself


The old man is sitting on the pavement with a weighing machine. You can weigh yourself for a price. Apparently nobody is interested and he has fallen asleep in the sultry Mumbai weather.
