Rhodes house repast

British imperialist Cecil John Rhodes had a fondness for cold roast lamb and champagne, both of which were served, along with Malay food and various coffees from Africa, at the Rhodes Cottage Museum in Muizenberg on Sunday March 27. The event was held by the Muizenberg Historical Conservation Society, the day after the 120th anniversary of Rhodes’s death, on March 26, 1902. Pictured is the chairman of the Muizenberg Historical Conservation Society, Glenn Babb, cutting the roast lamb.
