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.
Sea Point Baths and Rail Line. 1923. The clock on the Pavilion was provided by E.Burmester, the Jeweller, Watchmaker and Optician of Adderley Street. His Will, dated 3 October 1914 stated: "In grateful remembrance of the very pleasant times I had at Sea Point, I determine that my heirs shall erect there on the beach, a fine clock tower to the value of two hundred to three hundred pounds sterling.
