(Photo: my great grandfather John Parker OBE was an architect and the first mayor of greater Cape Town in 1913 – 1915. My grandfather John Kilgour Parker was an architect as were/are my uncles Dickon, Graham and Howard. I have very much enjoyed the music of living in Cape Town for the past two years, for the first time in my life).
