St Mary's Catherdral

Visible in photo 797, (far left of the panorama of Cape Town, taken from the Castle.) This is a detail picture - the church is not visible in the re-take because of modern structures in the way. (Had there been no cloud on the mountain you'd have…

"Our National Archives have wonderful collections of photographs - it's something I've had on my to-do list for some time, but the major collections are all slightly post this era.  I've already discovered with the Pine Avenue…"

"Not really, Gary. The reality is that *if* the original trees remain they will be so different as to be unrecognisable. The avenue is straight, and I can't see how we'd tell one spot from another.  Also, the absence of a picture of…"

"Yes - to the left and lower down. That is where Military Road is. I could not get there on Saturday because there were big road closures in town - Denzil Washington is making a movie called "Safe House" and Cape Town is a major location.…"

Cape Town City Centre

"1. Parliament is not, and was built slightly after Challenger was here; but I loaded it to show the similarity in design with the building on the far right of the big panorama. 2. The Town House will be in the panorama, to the left of the Lutheran…"

"Great post! I felt a bid sad at first that it is no longer visible, but I like how it is hiding between the buildings. Don't you think it adds charm?   Btw, do you have screen shots of the view in GE?    "

45620 today

"I'm not certain of the details, but I know there was a major change to the shoreline of Simon's Town with the building of the harbour. That all happened later. I'll ask around for details."

Looking at the whole picture before diving into the detail

Posted on March 28, 2011 at 6:30am 0 Comments

So, I've spent hours, days and months pondering over picture 799 in the Unofficial Cape of Good Hope series (http://sns-challenger.ning.com/photo/albums/cape-of-good-hope-unofficial). 

 

The strong, visible columns make the building so easy to find, you'd think. But now comes a complexity of my own making.  Early on in the process of looking for these places I printed out each…

Adderley Street: Then and now.

Posted on March 28, 2011 at 1:30am 2 Comments

After carefully working with Google Maps and Streetview (I love that technology!) I narrowed down the options for a re-photography on Saturday afternoon.

 

The first shot to tackle was 45625,  Adderley Street, the main street of Cape Town's city centre.

 

 

The confirmed building is the black-spired church in the middle of the picture - the clock-tower of the Groote Kerk which is still there.  In addition, I know that the small pagoda in…

Picture 46606: from the Castle of Good Hope

Posted on December 11, 2010 at 6:00am 2 Comments

I visited the Castle of Good Hope today, looking to see whether any of the unofficial photos had been taken from there. Picture 46606 appears to have been taken from either the Buuren or Leerdam bastions, or on the battlements between the two bastions. This was the only point high enough for the angle of this picture - and also a logical place for a photo to be taken. I'll go through the pros and cons of each option.

What beach? It's a railway line!

Posted on November 28, 2010 at 5:00am 3 Comments

My first guess on picture 46606 was that it was taken near the Waterfront, looking up towards Lions Head.

But as we drove into the city centre this afternoon and looked up at the angle of Lions Head from Eastern Boulevard, it was immediately obvious that the photographer had been closer to the castle than the harbour.

We drove down Strand Street, and I watched the angle of Lions Head change in the rear-view…
