Bombarci : The Early Days

Dear Mr. Bhalerao,

In rummaging through a deceased uncle's trove of old photos, I came across a photograph of the "Bombarci", the BB&CI Rly Agent's bungalow that my great uncle supervised the construction of. The photograph is dated June 1926 and is annotated with the legend: From Sir Earnest and Lady Jackson to B. P.Oka, supervisor in charge of construction of Bombarci". Please note that the agent (General Manager, in those days) was Sir Ernest Jackson, who played a vital role in the formation of the BB&CI ( today's Western) Railway.

A copy of the photo is attached. Perhaps, not the best copy, the photo having been taken with a smartphone and then copied to a laptop, but it is the best I have.

I was wondering if you could shed some light on the building, its history and its present condition.

Thank you,

Warm regards,
