The 43 pictures in this photo book were taken during 2018 and 2019 to commemorate the bicentenary of the 1820 Settlers. They’re a personal selection of Grahamstown’s Heritage Sites and prominent landmarks. There are 70 gazetted Heritage Sites in the city (recently renamed Makhanda). Most front on to the ten streets and two forts of the town shown in Piers sketch of Grahamstown in 1838. Fort England lies on the top left of the sketch and Fort Selwyn is on the right hand margin. The centre of the town was undoubtedly the triangular shaped Church Square.
This link allows you to browse the book page by page. It has 43 colour pictures and three maps in a softcover at A5 size.
I’ve photographed the landmarks and street scenes using different styles. Some are taken by moonlight, some are in a sepia style and others highlight the character of the town as it is today.
