Staircases: Liberty (1949)
New Marine Lines.
The opening of the great cinemas Regal in 1933 and Liberty in 1949, can neatly mark the age of Art Deco in Bombay.
During this period, Art Deco transformed the cityscape with its streamlined forms, colourful facades and iconography of speed and travel.
Hashim Badani gives Liberty a good dekho.
