Church Square, Cape Town

A view of Church Square dating from around 1892. The slave tree, under which slaves were sold, was situated just to the right of the trees in the photograph. The remarkable clarity of this image was achieved by the photographer taking multiple exposures - as indicated by the slight blur of the feet of pedestrians crossing the square.
