    Description
    'Madras Then: The Story of Madras' is the tale of several small villages that grew to become metropolis. In the sixteenth century, when the Dutch raised the price of pepper by 5 shillings, 24 merchants in London formed the East India Company in 1600 to corner the India trade. This event was to change the course of Indian history and to lead to the formation of several Indian cities, including Madras. A city of myth and historical importance, Madras and the region around the city has served as an important administrative, military and economic centre for many centuries. With rare archival photographs from museums and libraries from around the world the book showcases a large number of photographs from private collections and tells a story of a city earlier also known as Blacktown. City of the oldest living language in the world, Chennai is different from the other three metros of India. A city also popularly called the cultural centre of South India, Chennai is fast becoming home to some of the major global IT and automobile companies as well as India's foremost centre of medical tourism.A city of politics and films, Chennai has made Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha as popular as Rajnikanth and Kamal Hassan. From a lazy, sleepy Madras of the early twentieth century, the city is changing rapidly and this photo journey showcases the different facets of this beautiful city on the harbour.

    Brings back old memories of the City. Nice compilation.

    I bought this book at a price one cannot resist.

    The compilation of pictures, especially that of old madras, is something that one could cherish. The pictures are accompanied with good annotations. Although, there is nothing much to brag about Chennai in its new avatar. The size of the book is quite big and makes it a perfect coffee table book.

    This book might interest anyone who wish to look back at how charming the Chennai city was.

    Decent Content

    Book and print quality is good! But the content is decent. Somewhere I felt I know and have seen more and better pictures than what were there. not really great information for what I have paid.
