The other mural on the Post Office exterior. I have highlighted the old name of Gordons Bay then "Vis Hoek" PLEASE VIEW FULL SIZE.
No.8
Gordon's Bay was originally named "Vis Hoek" / "Fish Hoek", many years before the town of the same name, located on the western side of False Bay, was founded. Evidence of this can be seen on the outside wall of the local Post Office.
