The history of Hartbeespoort Dam in pictures

    It not only influenced the lives of people and gave rise to the establishment of towns, but also changed the whole landscape and to some extent even the climate and the vegetation. The change of landscape was so profound that the dam today is the most important element in the region, after the mountains.
    Construction on the dam wall as we know it now, started in 1920 and it was completed in 1923. These old photographs illustrate the historic construction of one of South Africa’s top tourist attractions.
