Cape Town's first traffic light. The city's first three traffic lights were installed in January 1932.This one is in Darling street near the Castle. They were promptly named Robots. a uniquely South African term which has remained through the years.
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.
