Swellendam Republic living the Good Life

Great photograph by resident photographer Bruce Geils who captured the spirit of the evening perfectly in this most evocative shot. Only after the event did we realise that there were a few nanny republicans who were very worried about the sky lanterns setting the Drostdy on fire which would have made for an explosive launch to say the least.

Anyway. The Drostdy lived to see another day, the nannies had fretted for nothing and the result is a collection of photographs which will endure painful copy lines in our marketing drives for the foreseeable future.

Great article as reported this week after the very successful launch of the Republic of Swellendam.
