James Hall Museum of Transport

Founded in 1964 the Museum of Transport is a historical collection of vintage land transportation vehicles used in South Africa, dating back to the early 19th century.

ANIMAL-DRAWN VEHICLES:
The museum has many animal drawn vehicles on display, including the popular two-seater Cape cart. Lots of ox-wagons, and of course the infamous Voortreker wagon are among the museum's more interesting vintage vehicles from the 19th century.

STEAM-POWERED VEHICLES:
By the 20th century a wide variety of steam-powered vehicles were to be seen clunking about the country, including buses, tractors, wagons, and of course, most importantly, steam trains.

DIESEL / ELECTRICAL / PETROL VEHICLES:
Electric trolley buses were quite popular in the larger cities. (Just up the road in Rosettenville you will find a street named Tramway).

MOTORCYCLES / BICYCLES / TRICYCLES:
Examples of penny farthings, and the wooden "boneshaker", and a tandem bicycle built for two can be found in the East Hall.

FIRE ENGINES:
The museum also houses a beautiful collection of vintage fire trucks and other fire-fighting equipment.

MOTOR CARS:
The North Hall exhibits the history of the automobiles in South Africa, going back to the days of solid rubber tyres.

TRAMS:
The history of trams in South Africa began with the horse-drawn tram. Electric trams were also very popular, running in Johannesburg until 1961.
