The Elliot Collection is one of the most remarkable photographic collections in the world. Arthur Elliot was 30 years old and of no settled profession in 1900 when he was given a quarter plate camera as a present. Soon, the main interest of this self-made American was recording the historic landmarks in Cape Town and its surroundings, with an unfailing eye for the essential that no photographer trying to capture the old Cape has ever been able to equal. This book contains a selection of his wonderful photographs.
