Many readers of the Independent on Saturday have suggested we publish a coffee-table edition of our popular “Then and Now” weekly photographic feature and here it is. We hope this book delights readers by conjuring up memories of earlier times and for marveling at how Durban has changed. Although there are some photographs of other places, the book focuses largely on Durban showing it as a city people like to visit to have fun whether it is as a vacation or on business. Much of the city’s enterprise over the years has been and continues to be focused around the port and this is reflected in this book. A few of the photographs reflect the changes the beachfront, hotels, gardens and restaurants have gone through, particularly along the Golden Mile. We all like to take holiday snaps and these photographs have been a great source of material for our “Then and Now” feature. This book would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and generosity of our readers who have sent us their favourite photographs from family albums, old books, archives and stocks of old postcards. We hope this book will give our readers hours of entertaining reading.
