Souvenir Saturday: West Street Durban at the turn of the century

Central West St, Durban, ca 1893 -1902;
double-decker horse-drawn trams (note the tracks) and rickshas - no motorised vehicles. 
Rickshas came into use in Durban in 1893, electric trams in 1902. On the left the clock tower of the Town Hall built in 1885, now the Post Office, can be seen. The new City Hall was built in 1910.
