Durban, Natal [i.e. KwaZulu-Natal], 1873 - 1877
Scope and Contents
195 x 134 mm. A view looking west along West Street with West Street Central in the foreground. On the street are several spans of oxen. Annotated to the side of the print, in pencil and in a different hand to the title, and possibly written by the original cataloguer, are the following captions: '75 G. Prince, Farrier Central W. St, H + R, drapers, P. Henwood, ironmongers, Brittania Hse. West Street, West'; 'Before 1879'; 'Central West Street looking West.' This photograph was probably taken in the mid 1870's: by 1879 the drapery firm of Henwood and Roseveare is no longer listed in the 'Natal Almanac, Directory and Register.' (Vietzen, 1963).
