On Sunday the 28th June 1931 around 06:30am, CP Jordaan and his family left Pretoria on a holiday trip to Lourenco Marques, joined by his Dad, Mom and Gerard.
CP Jordaan decided diarise the holiday from the beginning to the end. All 32 days and 100 pages with plenty of amazing illustrations. I personally recommend that everyone read his diary below. The writing says so much about a holiday back in the good old 1930's and the illustrations are priceless. CP has even thrown some newspaper articles in the mix. All together a work of art and a compliment to the Jordaan family, enjoy !
Your curator, Andre Bezuidenhout
