South African Ports in the 1950's and 1960's

Stumbled across this link this morning

Great official photos of all South African Ports showing cargo handling as it was in the day.

Cut and paste the following in your browser without the quotes

"http://www.flickr.com/photos/hilton-t/4005508604/in/photostream/"

It looks like the post editor is foreshortening the address.

Came out of shop in Capetown in '74. Jumped into taxi outside.
"Take me to the port please"
"No"
"Are you not a taxi"
"Yes -- but you are white and I am black"
"Doesn't bother me"
"I will be arrested. You need to find taxi with white driver"

Capetown wonderful place but couldn't live with that.
