Don't we all know that feeling? :slap: I have read 'The Borrowers' and believe it speaks truth!
Looking forward to it :popcorn:

I have managed to scan some maps .. one is in 4 parts Its a more modern version of the one albert sent but still fairly old There is a picture of an ellie and a morris minor .
The dark lines are our trip taken on our honeymoon in 1970 but the map is a lot older than that

The other map is taken from a brochure dated 1949 again slight changes from alberts map

Fascinating map, thanks for posting it Albert. I too would love to see the pics once you track them down.

These historical Kruger maps are very good. I like them. I think those who own some of these Kruger memorabilia are so lucky. Thanks Albert for a great thread :thumbs_up: as I think many of us are interested in seeing the maps and photograps of yesteryear :D .

This the legend to the original map (the English one).
Note the "Native Kraals" which were still in the park. It now becomes quite clear where some of the names come from...like the Salitje road, and the Babalala picnic site...

Elsa, that is the exact map i downloaded, although, if you look on a conventional map of the roads to Tsokwane, the roads are different?

To deal with the catastrophe at hand I thought that a glass or two of red wine would calm my shattered nerves...which it did, to such an extent that I completely forgot to keep searching for the missing photographs. :D

I have a since developed a suspicion that they might actually be with another member of my family; I will see if I can track them down (weather and wine permitting).

Rest assured that I will eventually post them.


What a treasure document! very few people have habit to save these kind of documents and you are lucky to have family member like that.

Were you able to track photographs ? It must be hard to locate them.

Looking forward to see other interesting stuff like this.
