Reader Paul Woodham just wrote in with a few memories of his time in Durban:
Lived in Durban from October 1970 to January 1972. What an incredible place; once you get the sand between the toes you are hooked. Will never forget the city. Used to frequent the Cumberland and played darts for the hotel.
Remember The Los Angeles in Berea (Lionel behind the bar), The Cooge , Crazy Horse Saloon. Stayed in Berea lido !!! Mentone Mansions and The Oceanic. Worked for SARAH as a crane driver.
* Jason Fox is interested to know if anyone has info about an old toll booth in the Drummond valley.
* Helene Beisheim wrote in to ask if anyone had information about an old Durban house:
I need more information about the house I am an co-owner of. It’s name is ‘San Kellind’ and the street address is 15 Charles Henwood Avenue. It is situated on the corner of Charles Strachan and Charles Henwood Ave. The house is about 100 yrs old, if not more, and I would like to find about the history.
* Mo Heine would like to know if there was a drive-inn cinema in Umhlanga and would interested in any photographs, if available.
