Description
"Blick vom Tafelberg." ("View from the Table Mountain."). The Table Mountain descends into the ocean. Below there are roads and dwellings on the left. The ocean is very quiet with few waves.
This picture was taken by Willibald Paul Schaberg (1900-?). He worked as a missionary in South Africa West, mostly in Elim. He married Elfriede Henriette Johanna Nigrin (born 1898) in Herrnhut near Dresden, Germany, in 1929. It is not known when and where he stopped working and died.
