Fish Horns and Hansom Cabs. Life in Victorian Cape Town

From the jacket flap: “Even today, over seventy-five years after the Great Queen passed away, there still lingers in Cape Town something of the enchantment of the Victorian era. Fish Horns and Hansom Cabs brings back that flavour to the loveliest and most exciting of South African cities, in memories of its buildings, its people, its daily life, its amusements and sports, its snobbery and virtues. Some 130 photographs, chosen mainly from the remarkable private collection of Eric Rosenthal, accompany the narrative which is based on the author’s unique stock of South African knowledge.

This is the third volume in the Pictura Africana Series.

Condition: Very good, some foxing to the prelims.
