Tata Central Archives

I admit it. I didn't even know this was a thing. But wow, the Tata Central Business Archives seem like an awesome source for researching the Tata role in urban planning and modern architecture. I wish I'd known about this when I was in Bangalore, it would have been a fantastic follow-up to my time spent at IISc.

I hope the research experience is as nice is person as it is on the web.
