WIth the Weekly Photo Challenge being Corner this gives an opportunity to show the sort of corner I hope to be pushed into quite soon, when I do a launch of my new book It won’t be in that corner, though — it was in The Book Boutique that, very sadly, recently closed its doors. This was one of the last events there, when local historian Dr Duncan du Bois brought out his latest book ‘Portraits of Colonial Natal’ and gave a fascinating talk.
Ironically enough, following on recent political freak-outs at the very suggestion that Colonialism brought any benefits to the country, there is much in this book to show without even trying how numerous these were, and how many people among the Colonialists were active in trying to improve the lot of all South Africans.
Another corner worth recording is found in the factory where Younger Daughter has initiated a feral cat feeding and shelter scheme.
Here is a corner inside showing the feed station she services daily. Bunk beds are on the other side, and even a litter tray is provided. No wonder, when she visits there, loads of furry fans suddenly appear.
