Gateway of hope

The imposing gateway and buildings of the Marsh Memorial Homes in Rondebosch. Established by the Rev. E.T. Marsh in 1901, it started out as an orphanage, but is now a "multi-cultural facility, catering for children whose homes are beset with financial difficulties, drug/alcohol problems or physical abuse, and who have suffered emotional trauma as a result".


  1. I love archways, especially if they lead into something as worthwhile as this one does.

  2. Hi Caroline
    Think my comment from last week disappeared during the Great Blogger Blackout of 2011!
    Glad to find your blog... a wonderful collection of scenes from one of my favourite places.

  3. I love the stone archway, as well as the red-roofed building in the background. Very nice!

  4. Now if one doesn't know that is somewhere in the Cape, you would think it could be anywhere in Europe.
