Relic from the past

The enterance to the Walmer Town Hall on Main Road Walmer is a reminder of a by-gone era. The hall was built in 1908, when Walmer was still a separate town and municipality. It has long since been incorporated as a suburb of Port Elizabeth.


  1. Thank you so much for this picture. It brings back memories! Is the Town Hall still there?

  2. Anonymous the ton hall is still there, looking a bit run down on the outside, but many functions still take place there

  3. A pic of this gate appeared on a Facebook page and stimulated a whole conversation about Walmer amongst a bunch of old Ex PEites. The most memorable thing, for me and everyone else who lived there, was how bloody difficult it was to get one's bicycle through these gates which had been designed to keep horses off the Town Hall property.
