The importance of Eloff Street was reinforced after 17 March , when Park Station was established upon its axis, thus providing new arrivals to the town with an avenue of transition from the quiet lawns of its northern residential area through to the dusty bustle of the business centre. Doctors and nurses began to group their practices in an area around Jeppe Street, north of Von Brandis, a trend which was maintained until the end of the 20th century.
A brewery, a mill and several workshops, which were established south and east of the town centre, heralded the direction of future light industrial, warehouse and motor workshop developments. Residential areas dominated the north and north-eastern sectors, and although these have long vanished, they established a trend which has persisted to the present day. The end of the South African war resulted in renewed economic activity, and in the construction of a number of major buildings.
Among them were the Corner House and the Carlton Hotel, both being the first of many steel-framed structures to be erected in the town. They were also the forerunners of more intense vertical development in the business centre.
Timeline of Algiers A Phoenician commercial outpost called Ikosim which later developed into a small Roman town called Icosium existed on what is now the marine quarter of the city. The rue de la Marine follows the lines of what used to be a Roman street. Roman cemeteries existed near Bab-el-Oued and Bab Azoun. The city was given Latin rights by Emperor Vespasian.
Early photographs show that most houses in this area were built in a square plan, with clay walls and corrugated iron roofs.
SN SN I own a Curta II in a plastic case, serial , with instruction leaflet and a copy of the yellow computations manual. This is in excellent used condition. Bought from Bryan Halladay in England and was used in rallying. I am learning to use it competently in historic rallying of my MGB Roadster. I am interested in trading for a mint Curta I or Curta II in a metal case that is complete with all literature and box. Also I would like to obtain a lether rally case as well. I am looking also for a complete Curta I in box with case, all original literature.
I have located a “Curta cup” which attatches the Curta to a clipboard for rallying. I am told that a cable was also attatched as another piece of rally gear. Perhaps someone could educate me about this cable affair. I am also looking for an excellent late Curta II,complete with box, original literature to use everyday, as well as a Curta I with all of its literature and box to round off my collection.
I have also located a “Curta cup” for a Curta I as well. This one has a metal zeroing ring. The serial number is

The question of self-empowerment and management by the workers is often neglected because the ‘vanguard’ has the monopoly of knowledge and wisdom.
Initially it made all the right noises and committed itself to creating a new, neutral and objective public broadcaster which would finally cast of the shackles of its restrictive apartheid past. With regards to the print media, the ownership structures remain a problem. This is what he said in The ANC believes that unquestioning loyalty by a public broadcaster to a ruling party is incompatible with democracy — whether or not the ruling party enjoys the support of the majority of the population.
And we want to establish both the principle and practice of that independence now. The ANC is committed to public broadcasting which is independent of the government of the day, and which owes its loyalty not to any party, but to the population as a whole. In other words, we propose a broadcast service committed to providing full and accurate information to all South Africans, and one which is protected from interference by any special interests — be they political, economic or cultural.

Meeting new people is the most difficult part and SMARTdate aims to open up the opportunities of meeting new people for friendships and romantic partnerships.
Life And Time One of the first ways in which we learn to classify objects is into two groups: In casual encounters with the material universe, we rarely feel any difficulty here, since we usually deal with things that are clearly alive, such as a dog or a rattlesnake; or with things that are clearly nonalive, such as a brick or a typewriter. Nevertheless, the task of defining “life” is both difficult and subtle; something that at once becomes evident if we stop to think.
Consider a caterpillar crawling over a rock. The caterpillar is alive, but the rock is not; as you guess at once, since the caterpillar is moving and the rock is not. Yet what if the caterpillar were crawling over the trunk of a tree? The trunk isn’t moving, yet it is as alive as the caterpillar. Or what if a drop of water were trickling down the trunk of the tree? The water in motion would not be alive, but the motionless tree trunk would be.
It would be expecting much of anyone to guess that an oyster were alive if he came across one for the first time with a closed shell. Could a glance at a clump of trees in midwinter, when all are standing leafless, easily distinguish those which are alive and will bear leaves in the spring from those which are dead and will not? Is it easy to tell a live seed from a dead seed, or either from a grain of sand? For that matter, is it always easy to tell whether a man is merely unconscious or quite dead?
Modern medical advances are making it a matter of importance to decide the moment of actual death, and that is not always easy.

His father was a shopkeeper and a deeply religious man who decided to move to South Africa in because of his sympathy towards the Afrikaner nation after the South African War. The Verwoerd family settled in Wynberg, Cape Town for ten years, after which they moved to Bulawayo, Rhodesia where the elder Verwoerd became an assistant evangelist in the Dutch Reformed Church.
After his schooling, he proceeded to study theology at the University of Stellenbosch, later changing to psychology and philosophy. He was awarded a masters and a doctorate in philosophy, both cum laude, and turned down an Abe Bailey scholarship to Oxford University, England, opting to continue his studies in psychology in Germany. Verwoerd left for Germany in , and stayed there during , studying at the Universities of Hamburg, Berlin and Leipzig.
His later critics have at times suggested that this coincided with the rise of German National Socialism in the s; however this stay predated it by a number of years. During this visit, he might have met with Fischer, but even at this stage, social-Darwinism was not the focus of Verwoerd’s research. He published a number of works dating back to that time, which are all still available at the library of the University of Stellenbosch: A method for the experimental production of emotions “‘n Bydrae tot die metodiek en probleemstelling vir die psigologiese ondersoek van koerante-advert” “A contribution on the psychological methodology of newspaper advertisement” The distribution of “attention” and its testing Effects of fatigue on the distribution of attention A contribution to the experimental investigation of testimony ?
Later that year, he continued his studies in the United Kingdom and then in the United States. Millar, who did an in-depth study on the early career of Verwoerd, concluded that there is no evidence that Verwoerd had been infected by the racial ideology of the National Socialists in Germany. He was in fact more impressed by some strands in American Sociology. His lecture notes and memoranda at Stellenbosch stressed that there were no biological differences between the big racial groups, and concluded that “this was not really a factor in the development of a higher social civilization by the Caucausians.
He returned home in to lecture at his old university.
Back on home ground, Trevor was at the ‘RAIL ‘ celebrations in to give us this behind the scenes view of the exhibition and ‘Grand Cavalcade of Steam’ at Shildon. His next overseas visit takes us to ‘SOUTH AFRICA ‘ where steam was still very much in evidence; his photo gallery will reawaken many happy memories of BR steam sheds in the s – a superb collection of both colour and monochrome pictures of South Africa’s steam giants Many of us on the East Coast main line blamed the Deltics for sounding the death knell of our beloved Pacifics but there is no doubt that, for a diesel, they were extremely impressive.
Their two-tone green livery suited them very well, particularly when set off by the red-backed nameplates mounted amidships. I do remember several of them before their plates were fitted and the difference was quite noticeable.
However, the fundamental national, class and gender contradictions remain firmly entrenched in post-apartheid South Africa.
