Cape Town is a bustling, growing, exciting city to live in – one forgets there were quieter days. I got this in my mailbox this afternoon and thought I’d share it with you:

This is Adderley Street – Cape Town CBD

This is Cape Town International Airport. Look at the Turbo-Props … Nifty!

    Loved the photograph of the old Cape Town station, would like to see more if you have, especially the other end ie., Cape Flats Board and Cloak room areas nearby.
    Way back then people just didn’t take photographs as often as we do today.

    Thank you

    Woah – guys, I don’t really know who owns the rights to these photos, but they’ve been floating around in emails from various places all over the show. It’s quite safe to assume that they’re in public domain by now.

    Instead of bickering, let’s just appreciate where we are and where we come from.
