The Birth of Greater Cape Town 1850 – 1913
From the fly-leaf: “Grand Parade, treading in the wake of the author’s previous book, Gentleman’s Walk, but standing on its own as a record of the history of Cape Town from 1850 to 1913 has a dual meaning. The title refers to the two functions the town’s oldest square had during that epoch. The Grand Parade was the Pageant of People as well as the Plane of Progress.” Includes a few fold-out colour plates by T W Bowler et al as well as photographs, maps and illustrations of buildings, the habour with its shipping etc. 176 Pages.
