(Adams shop from 1865 till about 1900)

As part of the celebrations to mark Adams’ 150 years, the booksellers have published a revised edition of Dear Old Durban, the book which Barbara Maud Stone developed from the diaries of Yvonne Miller.

In it she describes the sights, scents and sounds of Durban in the early years of the 20th Century. The book is now illustrated with numerous colour reproductions of postcards of the period from her collection. It will give readers a new perspective as they view the many remnants of this time to be seen around the city.

The book is available from Adams in Musgrave Centre.
