Reader Ian Forbes sent a picture which he found among his grandparents’ effects and he believes it was taken in Durban circa 1916. That does look like the Bluff in the background but apart from that I have no ideas. Anyone know anything about it?
Reader Karl Fischer has a query about Maydon Wharf. He wrote:
I am currently doing my masters in architecture, and my selected site for my dissertation design is between Canal Rd & Fish Wharf St, behind Wilson’s Wharf.
Where I need your input is to try and locate a photographic article that did the rounds on social media about six months to a year ago that highlighted the vacant buildings and forgotten industry along Maydon Wharf. Does this ring any bells for you? Or would you be able to direct me to something similar?
(My research is looking at the hard skills shortages in South Africa and the trend toward university education over technical/vocational education.)
