Apollo Bunder at the bottom of the map

Wellington Pier (formerly known as Apollo Bunder) was the principal pier for embarkation and disembarkation of passengers and goods in Bombay, India in the late 19th century. Immense activity was to be witnessed in the Pier in the months of April and May of each year, when thousands of docras of cotton, (pressed bales were yet to come) used to be landed. Wet docks were none, but the harbour during the busy season presented quite an impressive appearance with its hundreds of wooden ships and thousands of petty native craft. Activity was to be seen on the Cotton Green, at the Custom House, and at the hydraulic presses where the raw staple was being baled for export.
