oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Pieter Baartman: Kaaimansgat
Graham Ross, the compiler of this series, comments: Henry Lichtenstein had a few remarks in 1803, when faced with Kaaiman's Cleft near Wilderness: ' ... the monstrous gulph is now directly beneath, and at the depth of a thousand feet the torrent roars over its stony bed ... after having crossed the stream, ascends again a height, which ... I will not say appeared exceedingly steep, it actually appeared perpendicular .. .' At the age of 16 Pieter Baartman joined the provincial construction unit in George in 1945.
