Archived lives

I've been doing a lot of research in to the history of Mowbray (a small suburb of Cape Town, where I live). I spent a morning at the National Archives last week and as I was paging through files and files of photos of Mowbray and old Cape Town, I came across these portraits. There were no captions, except for their names, but apart from that, I don't know the dates or anything else. I'm guessing they are pretty old though, maybe from the 1800's or early 1900's?

I just think these are really special.
