Artist's Description

The old Laird’s Arms pub in historic, eerie Matjiesfontein, which quenched the thirst of many travellers since the late 1800s. Matjiesfontein was founded in 1884 by the legendary James Douglas Logan
Initially, this building was used as a carpenter’s shop by two Scottish carpenters who had been brought out by Logan from Scotland to do all the carpentry in the Village.

Later, it became a butcher’s shop. Then, during World War II, it was turned into a recreation room for Royal Navy sailors on leave from Simon’s Town. After the War, it served as the Village Hall.
