"It’s a large building, Homi Katrak Chambers, with simple but delightful architectural features. In spite of the wear and tear, breakage and chipping, this building is a thing of beauty, therefore a joy forever.
The structure makes an L-shape, and if you start viewing it from Hoshang Road and move along with it to its other side on Victoria Road (Abdullah Haroon Road), you’ll notice how impressive in size, and architecturally brilliant, it is. Even the dust settled on the green jaffris (trelliswork) doesn’t take anything away from the aesthetics that are intrinsically involved in the construction. The wide balconies on the first floor and two types of windows — one with (some) shattered windowpanes and the wooden ones — contribute to the visual balance which the building’s architect(s) may have kept in mind while designing it. Another important character is the well-shaped pilasters, still relatively unharmed.
The side that faces Victoria Road is no less outstanding. Here you might find the intangible traces of the past. On the ground floor there’s a board which reads, Niyazdin & Sons, Est 1930, Tailors and Outfitters. According to a reliable account, this tailoring shop was meant for up-market customers and was one of the most famous places of its time. It provides a nostalgic trip down memory lane, with Clifton Bridge on its right and the awe-inspiring Frere Hall on its left, not very far away."
