Being narrow and lined with tall buildings, many of our city-centre side-streets are reminiscent of the “old Cape Town”. A few of our streets are even made of cobble-stone, dating back to the time of horses and carts. In fact, I wonder how many people know that in 1863 the city opened its first fully operational tramway, operated by the “Cape Town and Green Point Tramway Company”. The horse-drawn tram service ran from the bottom of Adderley Street along Somerset Road to Green Point. Of course, there are no more tramways left in Cape Town today – they’d cause absolute havoc with the traffic!
