Wonderful South Africa is a 512 page vintage book I found last week. We have enjoyed paging through this thick pictorial volume from the 1930s. Not only are the pictures interesting and entertaining, the captions polite and naive, but much of the terminology used is so politically incorrect today. As we enjoy living in a post apartheid South Africa now, this book was published before apartheid was legislated, which makes it an interesting social study.
A first for me was to see this picture of Zebra inspanned on the mail coach!The caption states that "Patience and persistence must have gone to the training of the team, for the zebra is notoriously difficult to domesticate and refuses to show sympathy with man in any way!"
