The Bluff lighthouse and Signal Station, Durban

The Bluff Lighthouse and Signal Station, with keepers' and signallers' quarters.
Ca 1890s/early 1900s. Definitely prior to the addition of the ugly concrete casing

There is no mention of Captain Goulding, who was allegedly signalman on the Bluff at the turn of the century, early 1900s. Was he there?
