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.

Remembering District Six - 50 years later [pictures]

Today marks 50 years to the day that District Six was declared a "whites only" area. The barren land that now lies outside the city serves as a painful reminder of South Africa's brutal past while old photos give only a glimpse of what life was like in one of Cape Town's most famous neighbourhoods.
