The Story Behind the Design

Cape town has one of Africa’s most visited waterfronts.

Indeed, the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, situated in the oldest working harbour in the southern hemisphere has around 24 million visitors annually. 

Prince Alfred, the second son of Queen Victoria, visited the Cape Colony Harbour in 1860 when he was a sixteen years old Royal Navy Midshipman. 

His arrival on this gigantic ship was quite memorable and therefore the first basin of the new Navy Yard was named after him and the second after his mother.

 What you can see on this manhole cover, located on this waterfront, is the beautiful silhouette of Alfred’s ship arriving at the harbour in 1860.
