i was lucky enough to get my paws on a box of original vintage photos of stellenbosch, taken by photographer christo s. botha, who started taking photos of the town as a student in 1938. the photos are from a book called discover historic stellenbosch. if you’re a stellenbosch resident (or frequent visitor) you’ll recognise all these spots…
first spotted this over at stay fancy free – they were taken by nina leen who churned out countless of amazing photographs that i’m happily discovering all over the internet. how amusing are these college girls parading around in their slacks? what a revelation. looking good.
