I am very grateful to my informant Roger Ingle who was kind enough to obtain permission for me to re-publish Dr Tim Francis’ authoritative article on Durban’s early water holes, and the quality of water that was obtained from them. The article was originally published in the journal Natalia (V21: 1991).
I have put up a page with the text of the article and there is also a PDF of the original article, complete with illustrations, available for download.
*** Please note that the text was scanned from the PDF using optical character recognition (OCR). I have taken reasonable care but the process isn’t fool-proof and there may still be errors lurking in there somewhere. If you’re going to quote from the article, I’d also check the PDF, if I were you.Share this:
