Arriving at Port Natal ca 1880s

Durban harbour from the Bluff, showing the Point at right, sailing vessels at anchor, with a tug in the centre of the photo, the buildings of the settlement of Durban spread out along the shores of the Bay, and the Berea hills in the distance. This sight met many an ancestor's eye as he or she sailed into the port. It must have been very welcome after long days at sea.
