Sea Point Pavilion circa 1977
Only the swimming pool remains today, but that too has been renovated into 3 seperate swimming pools. The big round building later changed to the Hard Rock Cafe and then stood empty for a long time. The building to the right became a Wimpy. Check the ROBOT text written on the road - this is a warning sign for the upcoming traffic light. But they called it a ROBOT. Haff!
Sea Point Station c1901
According to an old map there were five 'stops' between Three Anchor Bay and the end of the line. This looks like the 'main'station where the present day swimming pool is. Confirmation would be appreciated.
Groote Schuur Hospital, 1967
Check those acres of nothingness. Chris Barnard was busy with the worlds first heart transplant. The hospital opened in 1937, and the new wing was extended in 1983-1989.
Beach Rd. Sea Point during the sixties
A poor quality postcard of a sunny day in Beach Rd. Sea Point. We used to be regular visitors to the beer garden of the hotel on the left side of the pic. Can anybody recall the name?
Table Mountain Cableway.
The Cableway was built in the period 1926-1929 and although these images might have been taken then I have a hunce that they date from about 1900, in other words about 26 years earlier. Could it be that this was an earlier separate undertaking? Any input would be most welcome. Photo; Thanks to fellow flickr member emmyeustace for the use.
