Old and New

Our OLD, taken in 1940, shows the then Mayor of Madras, S. Satyamurti, (1) with Sir Arthur and Lady Hope, at Poondi and (2) walking with Sir Arthur Hope at the Jones Tower, Red Hills. Both the photos, taken probably on August 8, 1940, when the Governor laid the foundation stone for the Poondi reservoir, are from the TV Rangaswami (Ragami) Collection, now with the Roja Muthiah Research Library. It is incredible that despite the huge growth in the city’s population, it has taken 76 years for a new reservoir, declared open at Thervoy Kandigai. Our NEW, courtesy The Hindu, is a view of the same.
