Adderly Street circa 1977
Becoming more recognisable to modern day Cape Town (the new Station has already been built, but where is the Golden Acre?). Look how green Lion's Head is!

Cape Town like you’ve never seen it before: 1940 – 1980
Cape Town has been voted as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and these vintage photos show the city in a way you’ve never seen – or at the very least, don’t remember.
Wale Street, Cape Town
An early view of Wale Street showing, at left, St. George's Cathedral. The bell tower, which is prominent in this photograph, was demolished in 1952 after it became unsafe. The first building on the right is now the Taj Hotel while the building in the middle distance at right is the present day Mandela-Rhodes building. Part of Signal Hill can be seen in the background.
Point duty late 50's.
