This exhibition shows the findings of a mapping survey project undertaken a few years ago. Residents were asked why they enjoyed living in the area, and to identify areas in the Bo-Kaap that have special heritage significance for them. The exhibition summarises the main findings of the survey. It includes a number of historic and contemporary photographs, providing a glimpse into the fascinating history of the Bo-Kaap.
