the cape town highlanders, 1890′s
Identity for a new concept eatery which recently opened on Long Street (Cape Town). The name, The Quarter, takes it’s lead from the colloquial term for bunny chow – a South African street food which originated in Durban in the 1940′s. The term is a slang description for a hollowed out loaf of bread (usually a quarter loaf) filled with curry.
i was searching for pics of Orania on flickr when i came across Alan Aubry‘s photography. he has an entire set of Orania photos, and another set of rad self portraits taken at various spots in the Cape. initially i assumed he was south african, but he is actually french. and again i am ashamed to think that a foreigner has seen more of SA than I have (specifically, Orania – a trip needs to be planned!). if you don’t know what Orania is all about, read up.
