The city of Cape Town was built over almost three centuries of colonial rule.
This exhibition explores the early expansion of the city, racial discrimination even prior to apartheid, and working life. It is dedicated to the slaves, convicts and free workers who built the city.
It features items from Iziko Social History Collections[J1] Department’s permanent collection, as well as large format photographs from the E van Z Hofmeyer & Lüchoff Collection.
