Place:Kalk Bay
Publisher:Kalk Bay Historical Association

Records the history of the families and the better known farms of the agter de Steenbergenof the South Peninsula in the period from 1738, when the first grazing farm was granted, up until the recent past. Special attention has been given to twelve farms at Cape Point, all later to form part of a large local nature reserve first proposed in the late 1930s by the Divisional Council of the Cape as founding authority which resulted in their becoming the first local authority in South Africa to accept nature conservation as one of its public services. The current and previous owners of the South Peninsula farms personal accounts have added much value to this history.
