     13Clifton & Company appears in Bombay in the 1870s. The firm quickly became a popular provider of colorful postcards from agrowing seaport. They record the transformation of Bombay from a harbour into a large merchant town. Clifton & Co. supplied the photographs for Playne’s The Bombay Presidency (1918-1920), a thick book surveying businesses across the Raj. Their location is listed in 1918 at the Albert Buildings on Hornby Road. Their postcards are among the most popular of India in the early 1900s, and they seem to have defined types and views from across the sub-continent, often using other photographer’s work, like that of Fred Bremner.
