Notes on the Geography of South Africa: V&A Waterfront: Photo 15

world pictures South Africa: V&A Waterfront

Now it's a museum and management office, but in 1920 it was the local office of the Union-Castle line. Ships left every Thursday at four in the afternoon for Southampton; ships left Southampton every Thursday at four in the afternoon for Cape Town. The route carried on to Durban, where ships turned around and landed here again on the way home. The company operated from 1900, when it was created by a merger (of the Union and the Castle lines, naturally) to 1977, when it died from multiple causes--for starters, try the Boeing 747 and the container revolution.
