Mumbai’s Dhobigaat in pictures and facts/numbers…

Fascinating slide show in ET.

Dhobi Ghat, touted as the biggest open air laundry in the world located near Mahalaxmi railway station, was built during the British Raj in 1890.

The Dhobi Kalyan & Audhyogik Vikas Cooperative Society, the apex body that represents washermen, estimates the annual turnover of the Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat at around Rs 100 crore.

Nice bit..
