Signalman's Quarters, Bluff, Durban ca 1900

The uniformed signalman is stepping down the ladder, presumably about to ride his horse into town - his assistant is holding the animal in readiness - no jumping into a car in those days. The signal equipment is centre pic but extends beyond the dimensions of this photograph. The roof of the building is iron and it has wooden walls. This would have been office and living quarters.
