Cape Town In The 1960s

Upper Strand Street 1967 with the lift shaft of BP centre on the left and Trust bank under construction a little further to the right.

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.

Cape Town docks in 1970, could be the Windsor Castle mail ship docked at A berth and a safmarine vessel as F berth. Note how undeveloped the city is at that time.
