A relief map of Worli estates after development shows the topography of the Worli area after the establishment of the mills. Clearly visible are the mills and residential quarters of the workers. The dense residential buildings reflect the influx of migrants who came to Mumbai to work in the mills of Mumbai (Bombay).

The Museum’s collection of historical maps of Mumbai illustrate the city’s evolution from a group of seven islands into a vibrant urban centre in the 19th century. Changes in geography as a result of invasions, economic booms and planning are carefully chronicled.
