Tygerberg Stories focusses on interesting stories and old to very old newspaper articles on the northern suburbs – Goodwood, Parow, Bellville, Durbanville, Kraaifontein, Kuils River and Brackenfell – since 1952. Some of these stories are in Afrikaans and some in English. I (Etienne Rossouw) found stories on the humble beginnings of neighbourhoods such as Welgemoed, Hoheizen, Boston, Plattekloof and Welgelegen. From the opening of the Sanlam Centre (now Parow Mall) to the Tygervalley Shopping Mall. From the very first bioscopes and drive-ins to the first TV-set stolen in the Tygerberg. From the once well-known prison quarry to the Tyger Waterfront of today. I’ve found that people are very interested in seeing how things looked decades ago . . . and I trust you’ll find my work very interesting as well. The stories and old newspaper articles give us an idea of how wonderful the people of the Tygerberg were and still are!

If you enjoyed these interesting stories and articles about the Tygerberg area, feel free to contact me for a PDF with all the information and images. Asking price for everything, approximately 220 pages of information: R300.
