1917 "Our Day" Cartwrights building and tram in Adderley Street, Cape Town

From the Coulter family photo album, courtesy Hans Niehaus. Fred and Agnes Stephens owned The Homestead at Oranjezicht from 1907-1947. Their three sons were killed in the First World War.

His photo album was found among his papers when Coulter's law firm was being wound up and rescued by Hans Niehaus - to whom thanks for allowing me…

Let's all get on the "nope nuh huh uh" cable car ride (Table Mountain Cableway) Old Pictures, Old Photos, African Image, Cape Town South Africa, Table Mountain, Out Of Africa, The Beautiful Country, Most Beautiful Cities, Places Of Interest

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.

I found this lovely old postcard somewhere on the rounds showing Sea Point pavilion. Old Pictures, Old Photos, Vintage Photos, Cape Town South Africa, Pretoria, African History, Pavilion, Live, Places To 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!
