  2. Old buildings are built so sturdy. Too bad none of the current buildings have this kind of strength or quality

  13. Darabshah House was the headquarters of the stevedoring company D.B.C Cursetjee & Sons; I worked for DBC from 1971 to 1974.At that time Darabshaw House was being renovated; so all business was conducted at temporary offices in Kumpta Street, Ballard Estate, Bombay. The firm was run by two brothers Darab and Behram. My colleagues were Capt. Khare, Capt. Purandare, Capt. Shapoorji & Mr. Mistry. After I emigrated to Australia, I believe operations were once again run From Darabshaw House.
