Let's all get on the "nope nuh huh uh" cable car ride (Table Mountain Cableway) Old Pictures, Old Photos, African Image, Cape Town South Africa, Table Mountain, Out Of Africa, The Beautiful Country, Most Beautiful Cities, Places Of Interest

Table Mountain Cableway.

The Cableway was built in the period 1926-1929 and although these images might have been taken then I have a hunch that they date from about 1900, in other words about 26 years earlier.

Part Four of the account of the early days of radio in South Africa during the 1920's as told by South African Dxer, Nick Kendall. The candid account, in Nick's own words, provides an insight into what was involved in being able to listen in during the early pioneering days of radio broadcasting. The commercial sets before 1925 (as far as I can remember) were all battery powered. It must have been at the end of that year that the "all electric" sets arrived from the U.S.A. They were all…
