It grew to become a lively, but impoverished community of 55 000 mostly coloured people. At one time known as the soul of Cape Town, this inner-city area had a rich cultural life in its narrow alleys and crowded tenements.
Much of the area was demolished during the 1960s and 70s, although now there are plans to redevelop the area.
Visit my online gallery for more images of iconic buildings and places in and around Cape Town, botanical works and images of African animals and birds in both monochrome and colour.
All images are available as high quality prints on non-archival paper or on ready-to-hang stretched canvas.
