Map of Lord Kitcheners Blockhouse System in South Africa, 1916 (litho)

KW808800 Map of Lord Kitchener's Blockhouse System in South Africa, 1916 (litho); Private Collection; (add.info.: The ramifications of the blockhouse system, which played so large a part in the concluding operations in South Africa, after the second Boer War, are shown here by black circles and lines, which represent respectively the blockhouses and the barbed wire entanglements connecting them. Actually, the blockhouses were about 600 yards apart; that is, about three to every mile. It will be seen that all the railways were protected by a line of little forts along one side of the rails, and that Pretoria and Johannesburg were surrounded by a network of blockhouse cordons. The other lines sometimes followed roadways, as from Bloemfontein to Ladybrand, or they cut across the open in order to close districts used by the Boer bands, such as the Lindley-Bethlehem country. From Pretoria the blockhouses extended eastwards to Komati Poort, which is beyond the range of the map. From Field Marshal Lord Kitchener, His Life and Work for the Empire, published 1916.); Ken Welsh; out of copyright

The Voortrekker Monument, designed by the architect Gerard Moerdijk, was declared a National Heritage Site by the South African Heritage Resource Agency. This massive granite structure is prominently located on a hilltop, and was raised to commemorate the Voortrekkers who left the Cape Colony between 1835 and 1854. Construction started on 13 July 1937 and it was inaugurated on 16 December 1949 by the then-prime minister D. F. Malan. The Voortrekker Monument is 40 metres high, with a base of 40 metres by 40 metres. Fort Schanskop, a nearby fort built in 1897 by the government of the South African Republic after the Jameson Raid and now a museum is where this photo was taken from
