This usage is documented as far back as the 16th century. 'The City' also denotes the trading and financial community based there. In this context it is also colloqually known as 'The Square Mile'. LONDONSlide 6: Mumbai is built on what was once an archipelago of seven islands: Bombay Island Parel Mazagaon Mahim Colaba Worli Old Woman's Island (also known as Little Colaba). BOMBAYHOUSING: LONDON Families relying on an income from casual work could only afford basic accommodation. They built their houses quickly and cheaply, often without facilities such as bathrooms and toilets. But the rich lived in big bungalows. Sometimes houses were divided in half to accommodate two families. This often meant that one family had to make do without a easily accessible supply of drinking water. Like the European elite, the richer Parsi , Muslim and upper-caste traders and industrialists of Bombay lived in sprawling, spacious bungalows. In contrast, more than 70 per cent of the working people lived in the thickly populated chawls of Bombay. Since workers walked to their place of work, 90 per cent of mill-workers were housed in Girangaon , a ‘mill village’ only 15 minutes’ walk from the mills. HOUSING BOMBAYHOUSING: LONDON The 1890 Housing Act made it the responsibility of local councils to provide decent accommodation for local people. Things gradually improved, but conditions remained bad well into the 20th century. High rents forced workers to share homes, either with relatives or caste fellows who were streaming into the city. People had to keep the windows of their rooms closed even in humid weather due to the close proximity of filthy gutters, privies, buffalo stables etc. HOUSING BOMBAYSlide 9: PROBLEM IN LONDON PROBLEM IN BOMBAYGrowth of urbanization: LONDON The city of London became a powerful magnet for migrant population. At first it was not too much populated. Its population multiplied fourfold in the 70 years between 1810 & 1880, increasing from 1 million to 4 million. Bombay was a crowded city. While every Londoner in the 1840s enjoyed an average space of 155 sq. yards, Bombay had a mere 9.5 sq. yards. By 1872 , when London had a average of 8 persons per house, the density in Bombay was as high as 20.
