A View of the Table...Mountain

South Africa ZA-73393 received 05-22-2015

Sent by: westcape
From: Kynsna, South Africa
ID number: ZA-73393
Notes: This card shows Table Mountain, which is located in Table Mountain National Park (gee, where did they get that name?) and overlooks the city of Capetown, South Africa.  It is 3,558 ft. (1084.6 m) high and about 2 miles (3 km) across.  As you can probably tell, the picture on this card was taken from a painting rather than a photograph. The artist is actually westcape's landlady.  Apparently the postcards weren't selling well, so she gave them to him to use for Postcrossing.
