The Durban Club

A close family friend invited my father and to lunch at the Durban Club, the self declared final bastion of the British Empire. It's an exclusive men's club located in downtown Durban. The club has been operating since 1861, and has been in the current building since 1903.

Arnold is my sister Joanne's father-in-law. He and my father have been doing business together since long before Joanne and Simon ever met, and now have the pleasure of having their children married to each other.

Head waiter Dennis Zondo, chef Khanyisile Mhlongo, and waiter Bernard Khuzwayo

My host, Arnold Taylor


  1. Dave what lens did you use for that shot of the two waiters and the chef in the lounge?

  2. Hi Ruth,

    That's a AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8 with a full frame camera, so it's really wide. The same set up I used for about 75% of the photos.
