Township Background

Lamontville was established in 1934 and named after the Rev. Archibald Lamont, Mayor of Durban from 1929 until 1932. It is the oldest Black township in Durban and was intended to contain and co-opt the Black middle class communities. It also provided a living area for labour working in the industrial areas.

The population in the 1930s was estimated at 55 700. In 1921 the population was estimated at 90 000. The township is now home to about 37 000 people.
