Capetonian. Sorry, I don't know the answer! I did go off for a Google to try and find out when it was decided that we should park 'on the left', but gave up. I have a vague recollection that it was in the 60s or early 70s? If there was no guidance at the time of the picture, we could just be looking at an odd but perfectly possible random distribution. On the other hand - perhaps most of the cars had been driven 'single occupant' and the drivers preferred top get out at the kerb?

I was looking at the road surface and trying to decide whether it gave a clue because it does look well worn at first. But that look carries on under the car, and I'd expect the parked cars to protect the surface. Maybe just the way they were laid back then?

ps. Is anybody getting automatic notifications from this thread? I'm not, so apologies if I'm a bit sluggish in replying.
