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. 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.

Cape Town's first traffic light.
The city's first three traffic lights were installed in January 1932.This one is in Darling street near the Castle. They were promptly named Robots. a uniquely South African term which has remained through the years.
