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. See her sets for more historic South African images here ; www.flickr.com/photos/59036290@N07/collections/7215762627... For more on the Cableway see…

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!
