Cape Town Map Vintage South African Atlas Poster Cape Town Street Map 1884 Bar Den Wall Art Slightly aged finish, retaining the aged character of the original. One of a large collection of remastered vintage art posters I have for sale.

Map of Cape Town 1891.

VIEW ORIGINAL.........for a fascinating look at what the city looked like 122 years ago. Virtually all the well known streets are there albeit, sparsely populated.. Today’s residential areas were mostly farms and small-holdings.. Unfortunately a small area on the right (Sea Point) has been damaged and the ‘repair job’ could have been better, but still gives a good indication of the lay of the land.

The Clifton beaches circa Cape Town, South Africa.

Clifton, c1934.

Looks like 3rd. beach in the foreground.

I found this lovely old postcard somewhere on the rounds showing Sea Point pavilion.

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!
