Welfare photo
I took this photo as Kerry-Anne drove past the Kayamandi settlement (on the outskirts of Stellenbosch). I'm not sure what precisely the text is trying to convey, and if anyone can help and explain I'd be most appreciative.

From what I've been able to find out, Gilbeys Distillers used to bottle alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks in Devon Valley, near Stellenbosch. It would appear as though Gilbeys closed its doors some time back and that a couple of its senior executives bought much of the bottling equipment, hand-picked many of the good Gilbeys staff, and started Rostberg Pty(Ltd), a company specialising in the bottling of wine.

Now, this still doesn't explain what the text on this wall is all about - but for some reason I really like the photo. Perhaps it's simply the colouring and incomprehensible black text... I'm not sure.
