Cape homesteads. Tokai, 1925
Scope and Contents
202 x 151 mm. Showing the front facade of the house in Tokai built by Andreas Rauch in the 1790's: 'This is the usual peninsula u-shaped house, but with an added bar, with gabled ends ... The steeply-sloping ground calls for an exceptionally high stoep, unique in being reached not centrally, but at the two ends by twin flights of steps, gracefully curved ... The forecourt is marked by symmetrically-placed outbuildings on two sides, and a line of pillars on the third: the two central pillars of the line are enlarged to form entrance-piers through which the oak avenue of approach leads into the forecourt.' (De Bosdari, 1953, p.39).
