Apersonal journey into the family archives of a talentedphotographer, this book explores Paul Weinberg's past as he retraces his family's footprints to far-flung small towns in the interior of South Africawhere his ancestors found a niche in the hotel trade. Part visual narrative and part multilayered travel book, this record is organized in the form of postcards to Weinberg's great grandfather, Edward.Weaving history, historiography, and memoir into a personal pilgrimage, it sets up a dialogue between the past and present and questions who records history and who is left out of it. The family's hotels are also revisited within these pages, and their evolution explored.
