Thinking of buying gifts? The Kalk Bay Historical Society has some great items on offer, especially for those interested in the history and architecture of  the Scenic South.


Attached are clips of the six cards making up the beautiful set we  had printed recently with the kind help of Delene Burman Estates. As you can see all are of local scenes. The cards have no greeting in them, so can be used for Christmas, greeting or thank you cards. There is a description of each scene in the card and details, where we could find it, of the artist. Packs of 6 with envelopes sell for only R20.  They are available at the St. John’s Ambulance office, 50 Kommetjie Rd., or their stall at Valyland – both in Fish Hoek. Or you can phone me direct for collection on 021 788 5113


A STATEMENT IN STONE –  this is Mike Walker’s latest book – a real collectors item. It covers the architects and builders who transformed our coastline in the period from 1897-1927. Richly illustrated with colour prints of architects drawings never seen before and a host of photographs – it makes an excellent gift at the members price of R200. Contact Mike Walker at 021 788 1927
