        ... sprung up when diamonds were found on the sand dunes, and died when larger diamonds were found on the orange river on the border to South Africa. being that there was money in the town, elaborate houses, shops, and a hospital were built, on the cutting edge of technology for the time. Even the ice making machine was quite impressive, and all built with German efficiency and coordination. The people just uprooted and left, and ...

The German influence is portrayed in ...
