The spectacular scenery of Cape Town's mountains and seascapes has fascinated its citizens and visitors for centuries. This is the story of how the City's early motorists opened up the Cape Peninsula and its hinterland. The author of the difinitive pictorial history, 'Early motoring in South Africa,' and Derek Stuart-Findlay now reveal the story of the building of the All round the Peninsula road, the first motor journeys over the mountain passes to inland towns and coastal villages and incredible journeys commencing from or ending in Africa's southernmost city. Above all this is the story of many of the personalitites involved in these adventures. Over 400 historic photographs reflect the challenges, frustrations and humour involved in the first 40 years of motoring in and around the Mother City.
