The author Juliet Marais Louw, who lived in the area describes the quaint and often amusing conditions which, until quite recently, prevailed in this now highly sophisticated neighbourhood. She writes from personal knowledge of the days when the link with civilization was the milk van, when shopping was in the nature of a social call, when the telephone exchange was happy to take messages for the lady next door.
Over a hundred delightful old photographs, many taken during the 1890's by one of the original settlers, Max Weber, give the book a rare charm.
