Gentleman’s Walk. The Romantic Story of Cape Town’s Oldest Street, Lanes and Squares.

“Cape Town’s streets have a tale to tell: a tale that reads like an adventure story because it blends guts with greed, humour with heaviness, charity with cruelty, romance with realism, and conveys all aspects of human force and frailty which led to the happy ending of a beautiful and prosperous city,” The Heerengracht was the street linking Van Riebeeck’s old fort and the vegetable gardens. This was known as “The Walk” taken by the gentlemen of the Dutch East India Company pursuing their commercial and social activities and round this ‘Gentlemen’s Walk’ the town was built. In 1850 the Heerengracht became known as Adderley Street. Price – $20.00 (ZAR-220.00)
