While Cape Town emerges from its building site shroud as a much improved city with modern infrastructure, here’s some pics of what it used to look like! Note the great old cars.

Adderley Street – note the cars and the sexy Christmas lights!

Cape Town International in its guise as DF Malan. Completely unrecognisable from to-day where the new terminals, two massive parking garages and retail complex are nearly complete. Not to mention the office park behind.

Hospital bend on de Waal drive – today a multi lane highway with enough flyover bridges to make Boston proud.

Cape Town harbour before the Waterfront, Convention Centre, multiple hotels and numerous skyscrapers.

Coming down the N1 – enough said!

Cape Town station when South Africa was Lion Beer country. Remember Westminster 85 cigarettes?
