How's these old pictures of Durban?
 
Way before our time, I'm sure, but some classic shots to look at anyway, just to see how things have changed over the years.

I can't be too sure of the dates of the pictures below.  I have put it under the picture if I know it but if not then your guess would be as good as mine.
