English: Original caption: Dapoorie Viaduct [Bombay]. A photograph of the Dapoori viaduct, near Bombay from the 'Vibart Collection of Views in South India' taken by an unknown photographer about 1855. View looking along the railway bridge built in 1854 to link Bombay Island with the mainland of Thane. India’s vast railway network is an enduring legacy of the East India Company. In 1853 there were 32 kms of tracks, whereas by 1948 there were nearly 50,000 kms. Interpretation: Picture shows Dapoorie Viaduct over Mula River near Dapodie, which is a suburb of Pune. The place was within the Presidency of Bombay, but not near Bombay.
Date 1858
