Calvinia’s Street of Art

A short walk around chilly Calvinia in the Karoo on Sunday afternoon revealed a hidden treasure of junk and artefacts of a bygone era.  All of the items are out in the open, but nobody takes anything.  A more eclectic collection would be hard to find.  There are around 200 tin mugs decorating a roof gutter, below which range goods from porcelain toilet bowls to old scales, motor cars, petrol pumps, lawn mowers, jerry cans, lamps, kitchen ware, school desks, etc., etc.  … and there are boots and shoes that must have walked around the earth!  A fascinating place, indeed.
