    • Thanks Jude. I honestly don’t know. Dassiesfontein is one of those places that is cram jam full of ‘stuff’ including a fair amount of dust, junk and rusting iron. It’s like an old farmhouse with about 10 inter-leading rooms – all packed to the eaves with ‘stuff’. I’ll add another few pics of stuff for you to see.
