Rhodes Memorial

Rhodes Memorial
Rhodes Memorial was built in 1912, in honour of mining magnate Cecil John Rhodes. An odd thing really - by all accounts, he was a ruthless colonialist, and was rather keen on making the British Empire as large and far-reaching as possible. He left a large area of land on the slopes of Table Mountain to the nation of South Africa, and Rhodes Memorial now stands on a section of that. It's an absolutely beautiful spot to spend an autumnal Sunday afternoon, and we'll show you a little more of it over the next few days.

P.S. Eamon, well done for getting it right, and thanks for stopping by!

P.P.S. Paul took this photo, and I'm in it somewhere. Let's see how good your magnifying glasses are...
