Central History Walk
Unexpected surprises in the bustling CBD
On this three hour walk some of the places we will visit are Statue Square and environs, the exteriors of the old Supreme Court (now the Court of Final Appeal), Government House, the old French Mission Building, St. John’s Cathedral and its leafy precinct, the Zoological and Botanical Gardens and the historic Jamia Mosque near the Central escalator.
Central’s development from the early 1840s to the present day, both as an initially European business district and as an administrative centre, will be discussed in detail. Street names, the gradual process of large-scale land reclamation from the 1880s onwards, development of civic open spaces and the process of urban evolution, transformation and associated social change will all be covered in this walk. Along the way, the evolution and decline of various long-established resident communities such as the Portuguese, the Parsees, Eurasians and others will be discussed and evaluated.
