Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 4
Muizenberg attracted more than daytrippers. The house with the tile roof is Graceland (originally Watergate) and was built about 1915 by John Garlick, owner of a chain of department stores. The thatched-roof building was probably built by an American whaler in the early 1800s. It was known for a long time as Barkly Cottage, from the Cape Colony governor of the 1870s, Henry Barkly. In recent decades it has been known simply as Long Cottage.
