Capetonians On Picnic

This scene, eternalised on black and white film, dates back to 1965. I praise the unknown photographer.
It is entitled :
" On an early summer day in December, white South Africans picnic and converse in a grove of large fir trees in a Cape Town suburb."

Living proof that the culture of gathering around your cars, braaing, talking and drinking, equipped to the teeth with useful and unnecessary gadgets, has transcended all groups and races in South Africa. Not much different than Gugulethu or Bucaneers. Ok a little smaller ! And today the gentlemen don't wear ties to this occasion. But the hats remain part of the scenery.
If you do it, do it in style.
