Durban In The Old Days

We take a nostalgic journey through the streets and views of Durban in the old days... proper old skool!

The skyline and views of one of South Africa's most celebrated and vibrant cities and not to mention my hometown have changed dramatically over the decades,.We take a journey through time to see what Durban in the old days looked like back then with a few pics dating back to the 1900's all the way through to the late 1980's. It's quite interesting to see places that you may have frequented completely unaware of what existed there before.Enjoy the journey, if you have any comments or more info on a particular photo, please mention the picture number (below the picture) if so it can be added as a caption if need be, will be great to learn more about the specific locations and stories behind them.Also if you would like to submit any pics to the gallery , then please do so as it will be great to keep the gallery growing.Please feel free to submit them via the Contact link, (photo credits will happily be given where available)For more amazing pics of Durban in the old days, check out the Facebook Page: Who Remembers the old Durban they have an unbelievable amount of awesome nostalgic pics from back in the day.Btw, did you see the unbelievably awesome video, ENTER DURBAN that exploded on the internet last week?
* Some people of all races may feel the urge to express their racist views. PharSide has neither the time nor is the place for that kak. If you think its freedom of speech or freedom of expression, it's not and your education failed you, do yourself and the world a favour and educate yourself properly. Any of those type of kak comments will be deleted and those persons banned from ever posting comments on PharSide again, rather go shout that kak in your own Facebook status so your mates can see what you're really like...so don't be kak, be lekker mkay 🙂

About Marky Warren

Your Blogger-In-Chief, Proud Springbok and Sharks Supporter.. If I could sum myself up in one quote, I believe Steve Jobs said it best… “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently,they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
