Ox wagon

The Cuyler Manor Museum just outside Uitenhage is housed in the original homestead built for General Jacob Glen Cuyler. Cuyler was Landdrost of Uitenhage from 1806 to 1827. This Cape Dutch style house has been restored and furnished in the style of its day and along with the surrounding grounds and buildings act as a living museum. Demonstrations of traditional activities such as soap and candle making, baking and weaving can be arranged. Part of the exhibits at the museum is this old ox wagon from days gone by.

    Very picturesque! Have added this to my list of things to do when we come up to the EAstern Cape next March.
