Signed Copy of Bombay Imagined plus a 248-page publication from 1964, the "Pictoral Souvenir" of the XXXVIII International Eucharistic Congress held in Bombay.


On 2 December 1964 Pope Paul became the first Pope in history to visit India. 

Oval Maidan transformed into an Open Air Cathedral, with a pristine white alter towering into the sky opposite Rajabai Tower. Comprising four wings, each weighing two tons, the design was prepared by Mr. Suraj P. Subherwal.

The souvenir specifies that he was "a young Hindu architect of Calcutta."  Mr. Subherwal's proposal was awarded first prize in an all India design competition held by the Congress Organisation.

Where did all the other design entries go? Were they archived somewhere? Were they destroyed, or more likely, lost in the paperwork of time?
