Today we have a magnificent set of views (mostly of the harbour) sent in by Johnny Vassilaros. Thanks to J Dube (see comments below) I now know that these pictures originated from from HiltonT”s photo sharing pages on Flickr and are courtesy of The Publicity and Travel Department of The SAR&H. Included are shots of the loading and unloading of cargo in the pre-container days, tugs and ships, aerial harbour views and some beach scenes. Most have captions and some even have dates.
When taking a look at HiltonT’s Flickr pictures I also came across this beautiful shot of buses having just been unloaded from the ship in 1939. The picture originally appeared in Life magazine and was taken by William Vandivert and shows the buses complete with Durban roller-destination signs. See the article on this site which talks about Durban transport.
