The following article on the history of the Port Elizabeth Railway Station was originally published in the October 1986 edition of Restorica, the journal of the Simon van der Stel Foundation (today the Heritage Association of South Africa). It formed part of a larger piece titled "The coming of the Railway to the Cape".
Please find attached a piece I found in the Triangle Courier a free community newspaper, dated April 26-29 2016 on page 16. Imagine my surprise when I saw that this bridge still exists!!
