The bronze leopard of Hout Bay was sculptured by Ivan Milford-Barberton. Completed in 1963, it was placed on its pedestal on 14th March that year by the Divisional Council. Pepsi-Cola supported the project and donated the bronze. The sculpture is a memorial to the many wild animals that once roamed the mountains of the peninsula. The last leopard seen in Hout Bay was in 1937 on Little Lion's Head Information: Hout Bay Museum

Llandudno

Llandudno circa 1900.

In 1905 the first house was erected and by 1930 there were two residents living there permanently (the others were holiday cottages). After the arrival of electricity in 1947 the expansion of the settlement gained in momentum and with the road being tarred in 1954 it became a very sought after area.
