Capetown-bay and shipping and mouth of Salt River .... April 1867, 1867-04

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3059A/3

Scope and Contents

242 x 177 mm. A view looking down over Cape Town and the sweep of Table Bay with the Tygerberg Hills (largely faded) in the distance. The Salt River Estuary can be seen at the right of the print. The remainder of the caption reads '... Tygerberg Hills on right hand 12 to 14 miles off (looking N by E abt.). Mountains in Koeberg Dist't in front. From Blockhouse on Kloof on road to Camps Bay, about 600 ft above sea ...'. This print forms an overlapping panorama with Y3059A/2 and the likelihood is that they were taken on the same occasion, despite the discrepancy in dates given in the caption: the great similarity in the pattern of anchored ships in Table Bay would tend to support this supposition.
