Sir Adderley’s Adderley Street

Adderley Street
This is Adderley Street, Cape Town's main road that runs from the harbour area, past Cape Town train station, and up to the Company Gardens. You'll see the tiny canal that I showed in my previous post to the right of this photo.

Alex commented on yesterday's post mentioning that the mayor of the day named the street was named after Sir Charles Adderley in 1850 to show honour to him for successfully convincing the British government not to turn Cape Town into a penal colony - like they did Australia.

Big-up to you Sir Adderley! :)
