Notes on the Geography of South Africa: Cape Peninsula: Photo 18

world pictures South Africa: Cape Peninsula

This building began life as a boarding house built by Jeremias Auret in 1785. His widow remarried, and her new husband lost the property, which was sold at bankruptcy in 1809. The new owner held it for 40 years, selling to a shipping agent who stored supplies inside. From 1860 to 1887 the building housed the town's post office. In 1898, William Runciman, the five-time mayor of Simon's Town, bought the building and gave it the facade seen here. Since then it's been a grocery and pharmacy. Part of it is now a patisserie.
