Grahamstown Reflected

£9.99

Product description

Open the cover and step into the magical reality of one of South Africa's best-loved little cities. The pages overflow with surprises. The Diamond, the Dinosaur and the Deep Sea Monster; the Good Sisters, Hairy Fairies, Fallen Angels, Castles, Picture Palaces and the Fringe on top!
Good old Grahamstown - there is nowhere else quite like it. Hidden in a secret valley amid the wide open spaces of the Eastern Cape, a dot on the map between Port Elizabeth and East London, with a special corner in the hearts of thousands of students who have studied at its renowned schools and university.
History has happened here - and still does. Dick King rode here in 1842, Parliament sat here in 1864, the national arts festival takes place here every July. South Africa's oldest postbox, family-owned newspaper and hotel are still going strong.
Locals and visitors alike will revel in this vibrantly visual reflection of Grahamstown. The informal, informative text is complemented by more than 800 full-colour photographs, plus fascinating sepia prints from the Albany Museum archives and the Cory Library for Historical Research at Rhodes.

The book is in very good condition with minimal signs of use.
No inscriptions.
