A social and cultural history of Cape Town, covering the period in which it developed from a small town into a city. Beatrice Hall explores this transformation by tracing the various activities of Andrew Reid in his life in Cape Town. A builder and a public servant, Reid became Mayor of Mowbray in 1904 and of Cape Town in 1907.
