Kalk Bay Not So Different

December 02

I came across this slide of Kalk Bay taken in 1964. Nearly 50 years later, not much has changed in this view from Boyes Drive. After some scrutiny I can point out that the big palm trees we see today were not yet planted, there are fewer chimneys now (they must’ve been removed), fewer buildings at the harbor and a different style of shelter on the station platform. I guess that’s the charm of Kalk Bay and the reason so many flock there on weekends; its still full of history.

The image needed a lot of contrast on the buildings to bring it to life.
