Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

An interesting photo has been posted on the RDVC. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I have spend hours, with a friend of mine looking at this photo with some fancy software that he has installed on him computer. And my conclusion is that it has nothing to do with Zulu’s and may not even be in South Africa The house’s look like prefabs, and right at the bottom there is what appears to be a telegraph pole. It looks more like a mining community.

Here’s a part of the photo showing the small houses.

hi oh2.
I have been reading the postings on the rdvc forum regarding this photo , and I tend to agree with you, the
buildings do seem a bit like the old prefabs , It may be a mining community in sth africa ,or possibly any other country on the African
continent , but I am fairly positive it isnt 1879 :)
cheers 90th.

Some other links to photos have been placed in the same thread on the RDVC; I'm assuming the first photo discussed is from the same album, which is showing some sort of railway construction. The chances are the first photo is showing accommodation and lay down areas. It’s a pity these photos were posted in the first instance.
