Decription:

Some years ago, while doing research at the Western Cape Archives and Records Service, author and photographer Vincent van Graan came across the most beautifully photographed and best-preserved photographic collections he had ever seen. The quality of these photographs, especially the work of Arthur Elliott, Edward Steer and Thomas Ravenscroft, is on par with the best photographic images produced today. He decided then that he wanted to produce a book showcasing some of these photographs of Cape Town, combined with images of what these landscapes look like today. Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the backdrop of Table Mountain and the Peninsula make it ideal for such a comparison.

In many cases, using the mountain as a reference, it is possible to find almost the exact spot where these old masters of photography set up their large cameras. Precious few of the photographs and plates in the Archives are dated, but in most cases it was possible to determine more or less when they were taken from where they are in the collections or by comparing them with those that do have dates. Most of the photographs in the book were taken between 1880 and 1930. After retouching and working with these photographs for years, van Graan hopes that every reader will appreciate how fortunate we are to have such a beautiful collection of photographs.
