A Guide to Glenwood Street Names: Old and New

Glenwood’s streets reflect the character of the neighbourhood- stately and historic, yet inviting and inclusive. These characteristics are also embodied by the names of its streets, which, through various cycles of change have reflected the ways in which Glenwood, Durban, and indeed South Africa as a whole have transformed throughout their histories.
Ignoring the controversies that have accompanied the renaming processes, the Glenwood Collective will, over the following weeks, examine¬†the names of our streets, both old and new. With the help of historian and Glenwoodian Dr. Annie Devenish, we will explore the individuals and families honoured on Glenwood’s street signs and assess their influence on local and national history.
Check back weekly¬†to learn a new story behind Glenwood’s streets.
