Things about my city which are no more:
Fishing row boat
I got no idea what happened to this but as a child when swimming near where ushaka is now, there used to be a wooden boat that would go out and fish using nets and come back in to the beach. Folks used to flock around it as the fisherman would take all the fish in the net that were of good size and quality and folks would stare at all the different fish. As kids we would grab the small ones that fall out the net. I remember once one of us got a live octupus and played with it in the shallows.
Durban main drivein, one on top of game city and a bluff one. I remember in the first ones you had a metal speaker box that you would unwind your window and hang inside the car. The later years, you would tune in your car radio to a broadcast frequency for the movies. Tickets were on a per car basis and normally were for two movies with a short cartoon show before the first one for the kids. Used to be great for families or that secret snogging in the car
I think that was the name of the place. Used to be on Victoria Embankment as the road turned into Moore road, just below the M4 highway. You could take your car their, folks would come to your window and take a order and then bring your food to the car and you could eat in your car with a tray suspended off the window. As a kid we used to love it.
Fishing off the front of the harbour
Before the developments and banning, folks were able to either walk or even drive right up the breakwaters of the harbour. Remember fishing off the side of the harbour mouth and catching a green eel
Movies at the Staduim
There was a phase of where they would suspend giant screens at Kings Park and show movies. I think it was a B&H sponsored festival or something.
The whale near seaworld
The old model whale outside seaworld on the beachfront.
Used to be a striped Ball shaped building near northbeach. Red and White stripes and had a stage. Often on weekends and holidays there would be bands or shows, interactive competitions etc.
