Mumbai's Colonial Architecture

Being from Karachi, the sister city of Bombay, I have tremendous curiosity and attraction to the old British colonial architecture in Mumbai. I was searching for pictures of Mumbai on www.flickr.com and came across these photographs. I am posting them here to avoid losing them, please contribute your own pictures as well.
Although I am not sure of the names of lots of the buildings I am posting, I would appreciate if you could let me know of their names, I ll make corrections to my post.

ps. I hope none of the Indian forumers take any offense.

pps. these pictures are from other users, and I will try my best to catalogue their usernames before their pics.

why would they? you have posted some great pics. indians and pakistanis need to stop being so defensive (and agressive ) with each other. be more natural. and as they say, play the ball, not the man

It seems like whereas in Karachi, colonial architecture followed more of a Renaissance theme, British-era architecture in Bombay borrowed heavily from Gothic architectural styles.
Very visually stimulating.
