A friend found this old postcard.

What and When?

I hope this works as I've not used this photo site before.

Looks like a C54 taxying in, with a Viscount on the apron

Somewhere I have a set of photos of old CPT and they are captioned - I think they include this one. If I can find them I can probably give you the date.

SAA had its Viscounts 58-71

I'm a regular at CPT and apart from the mountain, nothing looks familiar! I have however wandered through some old brick buildings whilst flying with Good Hope Flying Club (by the Safair hanger) and wonder if these are the same buildings as pictured?

Also, is that Athlone power station lurking in the back ground? I believe that was built in the early 60's, with the towers demolished in 2010
