Photographer's Note

Slangkop Lighthouse near Kommetjie is the tallest cast iron lighthouse in South Africa.

The Lighthouse was due for completion in 1914 as the brass sign above the door indicates, but due to the First World War, it only went into operation in 1919. This 40 metre height lighthouse warns ships for up to 33 miles with its four flashes every 30 seconds.
