Durban Then and Now

2014-05-29 10:56

We were recently left scratching our heads by a British Pathe video promoting Durban as a holiday destination back in 1962. Since then this split-screen video has surfaced - phew! Take a look.WATCH

Cape Town - Okay, so it started with Cape Town, then Jozi jumped onto the bandwagon, followed shortly by Durban.

But, hey! It seems like Pretoria is in on this 'then and now' thing too!

Check out the video. 

Following the success of their first three 'then and now' videos comparing SA's most well-known cities with themselves in bygone eras, Travelstart has just released one for Pretoria. 

Now, while we struggled to see major change with the others as well, it's almost eerie how little about Pretoria has changed. 

Well, that's what the footage suggests at least!

But, we're sure there's a lot brewing in the Jacaranda City! So, Pretorians tell us a bit more about your city! Where are the cool spots to hang out these days and what makes it great?
