Old traditions at the Casteel

At the Casteel de Goede Hoop they still observe a traditional miltary ceremony from times past. Here a group of uniformed Cape Malay men and women observe the Key Ceremony. They have come to attention in front of the governor’s residence. The ceremony is usually followed by the firing of the signal cannon but for whatever reason it wasn’t observed on this occasion.
