Mumbai - Dhobi Ghat near Banganga Tank

Back in Mumbai and visiting another dhobi ghat (a place in open air where large quantities of dirty laundry is cleaned).
(I stayed in Mumbai at the beginning and at the end of my journey. My photos of Mumbai, however, are not shown in chronological order.)

A few weeks ago I showed some pictures of the very large Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat. This one here is much smaller and located near the Banganga Tank. I don’t know the name, probably Banganga Dhobi Ghat ...
There are numerous dhobi ghats in Mumbai.
Again, I was kindly welcomed and I could take pictures of what I wanted.

Of course it’s very important that the dhobi ghat is able to return all the garments and bedding items to the right owners.
Judging from the picture in the workshop, I really wonder how they do it.
But in India everyone agrees it never causes problems.
