This pictorial history of Durban presents an array of old photographs showing the city as it grew from a small settlement of wattle-and-daub bungalows into the main port of South Africa. Although buildings are the focus of the book, many street scenes capture the people and the dress, and the progress from horse and oxcart, through to trams, buses and cars. The final chapter looks at some of the gems of old Durban that have survived. Many of these buildings are under pressure from neighbouring high-rises and property developers, and Ian Morrison ends his nostalgic meandering through the history of Durban with a sincere plea for the preservation of what little is left of a more gracious era.
