Camps Bay, Cape Town and Sea Point Electric Tramways Map

Camps Bay, Cape Town and Sea Point Electric Tramways Map
A tram ride described in an old Cape Town guide as being “without doubt the most beautiful in the world”, the trams brought all the peninsula to Camps Bay to turn it into the region’s favourite holiday resort.

The construction was authorized by special Act of Parliament passed on 20 October 1899.

The Camps Bay Tramways Company encouraged people to travel to Camps Bay – of course by tram – by providing amusements. These included an amusement park with a switchback railway, paddling and swimming pools, a promenade and refreshment pavilion. Competitions such as athletics and building sand castles were organized.

The first tramline between Sea Point and Camps Bay was opened on 9 November 1901 (the birthday of King Edward VII). There was a fleet of 17 long, low chocolate and cream coloured single decker cars. Seven had open sides seating 65 passengers. Seven had a small glassed-in screen in the centre seating only 54. They all had a powerful headlight switched on at night which threw out an eerie sweeping beam across the then deserted slopes.

From the car sheds and power station in Camps Bay a second line was laid from Cape Town to Camps Bay over Kloof Nek. This opened on 9 November 1902, with a press preview on the 8th. The cost for land and construction was ?200,000.

Passengers could now ride a circular route around the mountain. The 12 miles round trip took just over 40 minutes.

There were also three freight trams. Two were open while a covered tram took coal to the power station and delivered Camps Bay beach sand to builders in Cape Town.

Both these lines were considerable feats of engineering as the cars had to safely negotiate steep gradients.

An added difficulty was the fact that the whole of the work was carried out during the progress of the Boer War. Not only did this prevent easy shipping facilities but serious trouble arose from the difficulty of obtaining adequate labour. Despite this, the nine miles of difficult track work was completed without serious delay.

Conditions of some of the native labourers are described by Gwynne Shrire in her book Camps Bay, an Illustrated History. She quotes a Lawrence Richardson who visited Cape Town in 1902 on a fact finding mission for the Quakers (the Religious Society of Friends). She quotes:-

This morning we have been to see a “native location” a couple of miles from here (at Camps Bay). About 200 Kaffirs working on a tramline are living in little huts made of corrugated iron. They were “raw” or red blanket Kaffirs, i.e. uncivilized. They come from various parts of the country. On Sundays and holidays they leave off their European clothes and go back to their blankets. We were told that they earn up to 4 shillings per day and as they live on 4 shillings per week they soon save; when a man has saved about ten pounds he goes home to live in idleness till it is spent. They are generally orderly unless they get liquor.

In fact the main objective of the tramway was not to make money by providing transport but as a means of opening up Oranjezicht and Camps Bay in order to sell land for development of private residences.

In 1898 a syndicate was formed by building contractor Samuel Solomon Mills, engineer George Paling and others. They bought all the freehold land in Camps Bay for ?33,000 and also obtained the tract of “perpetual quit-rent” land originally granted to the one time Attorney General Sir Anthony Oliphant in 1839. To guarantee adequate supplies of water, the syndicate leased Oudekraal, the area to the south of it and a farm at Oranjezicht.

On 6 May 1899 a group of mining houses and financiers who already had shares in Cape Tramways registered a company called Cape Marine Suburbs which purchased land on the False Bay and Atlantic coasts.

The companies purchased vast tracts of land including much of Camps Bay. After the Jameson Raid, Cape Town was inundated by refugees from the Transvaal. However, the depression following the end of the Anglo-Boer War foiled these development plans. It is estimated that in 1902 some 27,000 people left Cape Town so Camps Bay continued primarily as a venue for recreation.

With little “commuter traffic” the trams remained mainly a tourist attraction.

In 1924 the Cape Town Tramways started its own bus service between Clifton, Camps Bay and Bakoven and the SA Railways ran a bus service to Camps Bay and Bakoven. The trams had proved less profitable than hoped and land prices remained low.

The last tram finally ceased running on 16 February 1930. Usable parts of Camps Bay trams were used to build “new” Cape Town tramcars.

In the next few years, the power station chimney was demolished. Brighton Court was erected in 1937 as an apartment block of ten units on the site of the running sheds. The council removed all the tram rails and the overhead lines and remade the road to provide a circular motor route.

This is a (composite – split photo [top & bottom]) of a Walthers model of the Milwaukee Road ‘Hiawatha’ Skytop Lounge car. It is also inscribed with ‘Cedar Rapids’ which is a city in my home state of IA. After neglecting this model a half of a year, I finally added figures to it. I had already painted the interior base brown, (too dark IMO, & maybe the hold up) & decided to get it out of the way. I added 29 (unaltered) figures, mostly Preiser, & two of them are doubles so I have a fairly full 31 people on board. I really like the way the two children look in the back, with the guy taking a photo. I think that is pretty neat, as well as the women in the (nicknamed) choir group in the ‘exec office’ area. I blanked out the bathrooms windows’ with post-it note cuttings, as I like privacy & did not detail them. I also added a couple people walking, to stir things up. The interior base has all the main seats cast in their swivel positions, so it took some planning to make a few of the figures ‘look’ like they were engaged with one another. Some of the outside facing figures are made as sitting busts, or ‘without’ feet to avoid tight fitment issues. Although I may do things differently in the future, it really took shape with the addition of passengers. I also realized how many more people I need. Good figures like these can almost cost a dollar a piece, even in large sets. Now, I have to figure out lighting for it, it should look nice lit up at night, especially with all those people in there. More pix to come when that circuit happens! This was a preassembled model, so alterations were made more difficult. I hope to do more with an unpainted kit version someday in the future, paying more attention to the seats & figure painting. This car is still in tourist service in full scale real life, (well one exactly like it), & has been on tours in IA, MN, & its home state WI, & perhaps more, I don’t know all the details on the real one.

Compact, Adjustable Stroller Provides On-the-Go Convenience
With the car seat detached, the stroller frame easily folds with a twist-and-lift motion using just one hand. When folded, the frame measures 16 by 13 by 33 inches and easily stows in a small trunk. The frame can stand on its own when folded or be towed behind you as you walk.
For additional convenience, the handlebars adjust to give you the most comfortable handling. Also, a built-in cupholder and key tray offer a practical way to keep the essentials handy when you’re out and about.
QuadShock Stroller Suspension Absorbs Road Shock
The G2’s stroller frame features QuadShock suspension to absorb bumps, drops, and road shock, so your baby doesn’t have to. Additionally, the hassle-free no-pump wheels mean you’ll never worry about inflating a tire.
360-Degree Docking Interface
The car seat base and stroller frame each feature a circular, 360-degree rotating SmartHub. In the car, simply place the infant car seat over the hub facing any direction and securely dock the seat in place without straining your back.
When using the stroller, the SmartHub allows you to face your baby forward, backward, or sideways. Turn the car seat to switch up the scenery during walks, and when you stop for a rest or a bite to eat, swivel the seat sideways, so the stroller handles don’t impede traffic.
Accessible, Removable Stroller Storage
The stroller features a removable Cargo Pod. This pod doubles as a diaper bag, complete with a shoulder strap and bottle pockets. The pod easily pulls out of the stroller frame, eliminating the hassle of transferring necessities or shuffling through a low stroller basket.
Infant Car Seat Offers Maximum Side-Impact Protection
Designed and engineered for maximum side-impact protection, the Orbit Baby infant car seat uses continuous foam lining made of high-grade EPP foam. Additionally, the car seat’s deep-cradle design protects your child from impact by extending high on the sides.
For added side-impact safety, the car seat remains very stable in your vehicle. The SmartHub docking system provides multi-directional protection to ensure the seat is secure in an impact from any angle.
Car Seat Base Installs with the Turn of a Knob
The patented StrongArm mechanism makes it easy to secure the car seat base into your vehicle. At the turn of a knob, the mechanism pulls the seatbelts tight for you in just 60 seconds, saving you the struggle of cinching the base into the car.
Certified-Clean Materials
This travel system also features orbitgreen fabrics and foams to keep your baby healthy. The materials have been certified by Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which sets strict limits on close to 200 potentially harmful substances and chemicals. In addition, all materials are certified BFR-free (free of Brominated Flame Retardants).
Car Seat Designed for Ergonomic Handling
The car seat features a flexible soft handle that allows you to comfortably carry your baby close to you. Easy to tuck away, this patent-pending handle offers a smart alternative to uncomfortable and awkward hard plastic handles.
In addition, two handles built into the sides of the car seat allow for convenient positioning and carrying. These ergonomically located handles also feature levers that allow you to easily dock and rotate the car seat.
Full-Coverage Sunshade Blocks UVA and UVB Rays
For added safety, the car seat features a full-coverage UV sunshade with Paparazzi Shield. Simply pull down the sunshade extension for nearly 100 percent UVA and UVB blockage and lightweight, breathable protection. Use the shield to guard your little one from harsh sun, wind, drizzle, germs, and inquisitive eyes–especially during naps.
Smart, Convenient Design
Orbit Baby’s plush microfiber upholstery and infant insert cleverly keep the five-point safety harness intact when you remove it for machine washing, allowing you to clean the car seat without the hassle–or danger–of figuring out how to put everything back together.
Modular Design
The Stroller Travel System G2 is a complete, upgradeable travel solution for your infant. It coordinates with other Orbit Baby car seats and products, allowing you to adjust it as your baby–or your family–grows.
