Victoria Falls Memories
Towards the end of January 2010 after sending out our newsletter, we received an email from a gentleman, which we found really interesting and which we thought you might enjoy reading too.
Many thanks for my first newsletter.
I am particularly interested in the Victoria Falls as I was brought up at the Falls and Livingstone from 1947 till 1963. In those days the Falls consisted of a railway station ,a couple of railway houses, Sopers curios. delightful small corrugated iron building known as The Pink Elephant who's owner used to sell ice cream.
The road past Wimpy along the river was 10 foot wide, and the present day game wardens house on the river bank was the customs and immigration for the passengers from the flying boat which used to land and take off once a week. If you require any more old stories of the falls which might be of interest to your readers please let me know.
Once again many thanks. Clive Goodrich."
I contacted Clive and said we would love to hear some of his stories from the old days, so over a period of time he has agreed, in his time, to share a few memories from his childhood growing up in Victoria Falls at that time. I think we are in for a treat...
Clive was born in Blackpool, UK in 1936, he moved to Africa at age ten and grew up in and around Victoria Falls. Today he has settled back in Norfolk in the UK. Where he claims he does miss the sunshine!!
Just scroll down this page a bit further, then click on the headlines to read Clive's memories of Victoria Falls.
