Photographer's Note

The long shadows in this photo belong to the obelisks style columns in my photo of yesterday. In the background is the beautiful Paarl valley.

The original idea behind the Afrikaans Language Museum in the 1970's was to honour the members and work of a society (the GRA) founded in 1875 in Paarl. Their aims were to establish Afrikaans as a written language, to standardise the language and to start publishing in Afrikaans. The home of one of the leaders of this society, Gideon Malherbe, was bought and furnished as nearly as possible to the original.
