Old Photo Wednesday (on a Thursday): Bygone Cape Town
23rd Jun 2011/
I came across a most awesome Flickr stream yesterday put together and curated by a man called Etienne du Plessis. The stream goes by the name of Bygone Cape Town and consists of a fantastic array of vintage photos taken around the Mother City in decades gone by.
In the blurb of the stream Etienne explains his collection as follows: “A while ago I looked for some sixties and seventies photos of Cape Town on the Net. To my amazement I could not readily find any.
Having spent some of my most memorable times in the Mother city, I undertook to do something about it, and what you see here is part of an ongoing project to share some of the images of bygone Cape Town.”
