Rickshaw rides are uniquely Durban. Brought to Durban, in 1893, by the sugar magnate Sir Marshall Campbell. They were used to transport ladies and gentlemen to the Berea and back. They were also made available for seaside tourists. By the 1920’s the rickshaw was a very well known symbol of the city in general. In 1902, at its peak, more than 24,000 men registered as pullers. Although, there are only a handful left, their pullers are very dedicated to this dying craft. The constant calls of the pullers are a great draw to stop and experience a craft, which is very unique to the Golden mile.
