J. Forsyth Ingram The Story of an African Seaport. Being the history of the port and borough of Durban, the seaport of Natal. (1899)

A scarce example of early Durban printing.


History and structural description of the Port of Durban, with all the information necessary to shipmasters visiting Natal, while merchants here and abroad are provided with full information as to trade and its conditions at the Port.


viii + 204 pages, with many b/w photographs in the text, and 54 illustrated advertisements at the end of the book (on pages 177 - 204). Two b/w plates with photographs of the "past Mayors of Durban" before the text.


'The major amount of Part I. is devoted to a sketch of the history of Natal, but Chapter VII. gives an account of Durban in the early days, with population statistics of 1852. Part II. contains an up-to-date description of the town and the bay, and a historical narrative of Durban; many of the more celebrated events are illustrated, and there are portraits of some of the mayors and other notabilities who have flourished in the seaport. The sketches also include representations of buildings in the town and port, and of the natives, and the fauna and flora of the country.' - Mendelssohn Vol.I., page 758.
