Please join the Fish Hoek Valley Historical Association at a talk by Steve Herbert on the Delbridge Brothers on Thursday 12 November 2015 at 17h45 for 18h00 til 19h00 at the Fish Hoek Library Hall. The Delbridge brothers, who were builders, quarried sandstone in a kopje on Fish Hoek’s Elsies Peak as it was ideal for building and particularly good for flooring as it polished very well. A lease was negotiated with Mrs Hester de Villiers, the owner of the Fish Hoek Farm, allowing the stone to be quarried. The business closed around 1905.

Fee: Members: R5-00. Non members: 10-00. Snacks and beverages will be available. Enquiries and for further information: Please e mail  fhvalley.historical.secretary@gmail.com

Pic - The nearest building where local sandstone was used is Muizenberg Railway Station
