Iconic landmark synonymous with the Strand. Anyone who lived/spent vacations in Strand prior to the early 2000s would remember strolling along it and watching the fisherman patiently waiting for their day’s catch.
It was the spot you went to eat your ice cream and no doubt had its fair share of romantic moonlight strolls.
All in all, a far cry from the unattractive, tattered ruin that remains today.
The question on many lips is: what happened and will it ever be fixed?
We chatted to the Environmental Management Department at the City of Cape Town to gain some insight.
