Photographer's Note

Another beautiful example of the unique "Cape Dutch" colonial architecture developped by the original settlers in the Cape Colony, starting in the later half of the 17th century. The Cape of Good Hope was originally used as a stopover station for the VOC (Dutch East Indies Company) ships trading between Europe and the Far East.

The "gables" on this facade are a feature which clearly indicates the Dutch heritage, still to be seen today in cities like Amsterdam, The Hague, etc.
