This may be close to where the picture was taken from. 107 Church Street is just to the left.

Sadly, I think all the obvious splendour of those days has gone forever.

A muster of the Town Guard at Pietermaritzburg



Pietermaritzburg has been preparing for all eventualities and if the Boers had attacked the town, which at one time appeared to be likely, they would have found the people quite ready for them. Our illustration which is from a photograph by S S Watkinson, shows the muster of the Town Guard on Sunday, the 5th ult.

The Pietermaritzburg Concentration Camp, where 216 Boers, mainly children, died.
Their names are recorded here: www2.lib.uct.ac.za/mss/bccd/DiedInCamp/6...Pietermaritzburg_RC/

The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
