A city won from the sea: The great reclamation scheme at Bombay. "The above sketch plan shows the great reclamation scheme at present under consideration at Bombay. The Bombay Government propose to reclaim from the sea the area shown on the right hand side of the line of dots and dashes. The total area thus created will be 973 acres, the scheme is expected to pay for itself in 69 years, and the Government will then enter into possession of a vast new estate free of cost. A small portion of the scheme, near Wodehouse Bridge, is already complete. The land is rocky and is only submerged at high water."
