First private trading site in Cape Town

This marks the first private trading site in Cape Town. Thomas Christoffel Muller set up here as “free baker” in 1664.

[Note from the Simon Van Der Stel Foundation: On the Adderley Street wall of Woolworths (Strand Street corner) on a tiled background is a blue plaque. This is in English and placed at a good height. Around the corner in Strand Street and hard to locate above a loading area is the Afrikaans version. There is no proper sidewalk near these two panels, which makes it difficult to access them.]
