What Readers Are Saying
I have met Mr Rudi Allmeyer as he came to see me in Cape Town and I told him about growing up in Montagu. I matriculated in 1953 and left to study in Cape Town and when I got married in 1959 went to live in Upington and moved to Cape Town in 1974 and have been here since.
From the photos your bookshop looks very nice and interesting. We hope to one day take a trip out and come and visit the town again.
