As structures, streets and the city itself have been renamed over the last decades, monograms are intricate reminders of the original names and affiliations of structures in Bombay. This monogram of ‘BBCIR’, in safe keeping of a proud lion (and crow), is found atop the Bombay, Baroda & Central India (BB&CI) Railway Administrative Offices.

Once again, as Fitzgerald would say, the photograph is by Dj Murty.
