Description PHOTOGRAPHS BY IAN BERRY. APRIL 1959 Ð SKOLLIES HANG Ð OUT. SAED:SOCIAL:CRIME:DRUM APRIL 1959 Ð Skollies Hang- Out - ÓLekke, lekke! HowÕs life , hey?Ó The skollies of the seven steps, who are acknowledged as the aristocrats of their profession, spend some of their time practicing whistling at the girls or requesting money to go to bioscope. Cape TownÕs Seven Steps has been described as Òthe most notorious vice spot in District Six.Ó And District Six sis not short of vice spots. The steps- actually there re eight Ð lead up from Hanover Street to a nest of dark little alleys. A few years ago a policeman was found stabbed to death on the steps. In the bad old days of gang welfare in the District, the alleys fairly ran with blood at times. (Photograph by Ian Berry ©Baileys Archives)
