A nice engraving of Cape Town, published by Richard Bentley, after an earlier engraving by James Forbes, from his "Oriental Memoirs".
The route around the Cape of Good Hope was the one that all ships took to get to the East from Europe. The most conspicuous landmark in the horizon when the ship docks at the Cape of Good Hope is the Table Mountain, often considered mystical and magical.
Formed from sandstone it rises 1086 metres at its highest point, the Maclears Beacon, above the bay and can be seen from any point in Cape Town. Its flat summit measures nearly three kms.
Forbes had a glimpse of the mountain from the vessel that was carrying him: 'The Table Land (Table Mountain)at a distance appears like one long mountain, with a flat surface, a nearer approach discovers its projecting cliffs, craggy sides and broken precipices.'
