Many of us were not yet born at the time – and others were still to young to remember, but many of our parents and grandparents are able to tell us stories of Cape Town and what they did in and around Cape Town when they were young.

We seldom see photos of Cape Town in these early days, and I decided when I received an email with some of these photos, that they are well worth sharing with our readers!

See if you can recognize some of these places and compare them in your mind with what they look like today!
