Cape Town , South Africa, in Colour....1949
Muizenberg beach( mountain of mice) was a very popular resort in those early years. These days it seemed to have lost its glamour to the Atlantic seaboard of Clifton and Camps Bay.
We had a chant in the car to drive our parents crazy: " We want a treat....an ice cream or a Crunchie" .....and we'd very often stop at Doll's House to get just that! Ah...them good ol' days!
