I came across this brilliant site….www.fad.co.za/default.htm…..this is about Durban, a coastal city in South Africa… I was actually looking for vintage postcards! I’m a collector of them…have a couple packed away in SA! and would really love to have it now to blog it… so, enjoy this picture about Durban in the 1950’s…and if you go to the site…you will find the most wonderful pictures and links…
I love history…anything history. I can’t resist books about historical events…and now even websites! I’ve got two more books to read!! why can’t I just walk passed these books and not looking at them! They always have to jump at me! “Russia under the last Tsar” and “The American Revolution”… and I’m still busy with the Irish book…and that book is a fat book. What do you call someone that’s addicted to books…I can remember when I was a child I even read all the advertisements…every single one…and I couldn’t go to the bathroom without something to read! Is this a “syndrome” or something?

“Greetings Alan, since posting my picture of The Nest and Cuban Hat, I am truly inspired by your website. I left Durban in 1974 as a 19-year-old lad on board the Pendennis Castle, to Southampton, England, where I lived until 1995, after which my family and I settled in Hong Kong. Although I paid for my ticket I did spend time on board entertaining the passengers.”
