Any info that would help to locate these places photographed by Ken Howes-Howell between 1930 and 1960 would be very helpful; none of them are known to this mapmaker; most are in the MCSA property south of Kromrivier. Click on the pics to enlarge them; use http://www.slingsbymaps.com/contactus.aspx to respond, if you wish.
Four things first: thanks to George van der Watt we have some useful info about Panorama Cave. Second, enjoy this pic of Sneeukop, behind Eselbank, taken on the weekend just past [17 August 2012]. Third, Kunje have come on board and joined the accommodation places that will be on the map. Fourth, I’ll be away for the whole month of September so no more blogs or email replies from me until after October 5th ...
