Identify this building?
Well assuming I found the correct building using google maps, it appears to be labeled the “Pump House”. Here: http://goo.gl/9tfSw
There seems to be some references to pump station online, but haven’t found much more info on it, however I’d guess it is used to keep water pressure up for parts of Cape Town.
It is the City of CT Pumphouse for the water from the dams on top of the mountain.
Thanks Dieter, thanks Alex. Wouldn’t you agree that the building doesn’t look quite like one may expect a pump house to look? It looked more like a small school or college building to me.
quite beautiful for a pump house!
Is the building open to the public? Seems like an interesting historic building. Are the pumps still operational?
I do not think so. Access is from Tafelberg road on the way up to the cableway station and the gate is always locked.
