The Town Hall and part of Elphinstone Circle Gardens[BOMBAY GREENS]The garden was planned in 1869 and completed in 1872 with well laid out walkways and trees planted all around.
This photograph was taken by Samuel Bourne in the 1860s. Elphinstone
Circle was constructed from about 1860 onwards on the site of Bombay
Green in the centre of the Fort area. It lies at the eastern end of Vir
Nariman Road, formerly known as Church Gate Street. The elegantly
curved, arcaded terraces exhibit unified Italian facades enriched with
cast-ironwork imported from England. Following Independence the area was
renamed after Benjamin Horniman, an English journalist who was an
ardent proponent of Indian self-determination.

BOMBAY GREEN CONVERTED INTO A GARDEN -NOW KNOWN AS HORNIMAN CIRCLE GARDEN
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horniman_Circle_GardensThe Horniman Circle Gardens is a large park in South Mumbai, India, which encompasses an area of 12,081 square yards (10,101 m2).
Benjamin Horniman, the younger brother of Roy was also an author and journalist.
His output was of a more serious minded nature than that of his elder brother. Similarly he was active in the campaigns to change the position of India in the empire and was also an ardent anti-vivisectionist. However he had no acting or other theatrical aspirations and after a spell at the Indian Statesman was appointed in 1913 as founding editor of the Bombay Chronicle. Here his radical views made him enemies in the colonial government and in 1919 he was banished from India. He is still remembered in India as a passionate supporter of Indian Independence.
