Cape Dutch Architecture is a collective noun for the early settlers architecture in the Western Cape, South Africa. Less known is that individual towns and villages characterized/personalized the gables. A kind of branding one could say. The gable in this picture is the traditional Stanford one. I photographed it early this morning.
One day, a long, long time ago (long before the first European settlers set foot on Table Mountain), Dassie and the elephant were crossing a wooden bridge somewhere in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa.
Says Dassie to the elephant: “Together we make a lot of noise … don’t we cousin?”
