Now and then

Look at the old Table Mountain Cableway, for example – it has become a lot more high-tech with a rotating floor and huge windows, ensuring that all passengers get a 360-degree aerial view as they head up the mountain.

We will be running a “now and then” feature over the next couple of weeks, showing old photographs of Cape Town (taken circa 1950-1970) followed by recent pictures of the same areas, and we would love you to participate.
Do you have recent pictures of:
- The railway station in the city centre
- Newlands Rugby Stadium
- Kalk Bay Harbour
- Newlands Crickets Grounds
- The Sea Point esplanade
- A view of Hout Bay looking out towards the ocean
- The Total petrol station in Sea Point
- The beachfront at Rocklands Beach, near Sea Point
- The intersection at Adderley and Strand Streets?
