Old pics of Bangalore landmarks?

After seeing these 3 old photos on Anasuya’s blog, I thought why not ask readers and contributors here for old pics of Bangalore landmarks.

If you mail them to me (silkboard at gmail dot com) and if there is a good number of them, we can create a “now and then” like Flickr Group. Or alternatively, we can do “now and then” like posts here for all to see how MG Road or Hosur Road looked back then and how they compare now.

Post Edit: I found a bigger repository of old Bangalore photographs at this webpage titled “Bangalore in 1945 – 1946“. All photos are credited to Antony. The parent website maintained by Ronnie has more than just these old photos. Worth a visit.

Does anyone know “Antony kaun hai” ? He seems to have a collection of old Bangalore snaps.

    He’s an old Banglorean and a Josephite.

    Good find Karthik. There is a nice old photo of MG Road there.

    Bangalore Bytes, no “Bangalorean” anymore. Try “Bengalooruvar”. And your handle should now be “Bengalooru Bytes”!! And we are trying to do a “Bengalooru Metblogs” as well. Cheers!

    Hey, so do you know Antony? I got hold of his email. Will write to him for his collection of old snaps. Hope he will oblige.

    i am looking for pictures of Bangalore in the year 1989. Could someone help me access these pics? I am working on a Nostalgia project. Instead of just the “good old days” of youth, am picking a specific year 1989. Pics of brigade road would be great.
    thanks in advance.
