Forgotten Cape Town: A Visual History 1850-1950

R 215.00
This book is a wonderful review of images which are intended to capture the changing face of Cape Town from 1850 to 1950. Selected from thousands, the 334 pictures finally chosen capture the character of this loveliest of South African cities. These old, faded photographs evoke a dreamy fascination with a world different to our own, but somehow preferable in its spaciousness, its arcadian simplicity and relaxed atmosphere.

A very good book and well worth the money. A lot of great photographs that bring the old buildings, streets and landscapes to life. Could have had more dates (where possible) to the photographs for better context.
