The Vineyard Hotel

Posted by Todd Anderson on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 Under: Vintage Design

I was at the Vineyard hotel this morning and came upon these wonderful black and white drawings. Each of the illustrations show a scene of Cape Town from the 1820’s. You can clearly see the backdrop of Table Mountain in each of the pictures. The first image is of Newlands in Claremont, where the Vineyard hotel is, and is dated 1827.
