EIENAAR / KONTAKPERSOON: Derick Erasmus 

 

Johan Schoeman het in 1938 feitlik al sy belange in Meerhof aan ‘n dr O Popper verkoop (044, 045). Popper het ‘n groot getal Italiaanse krygsgevangenes in diens gehad om sy kliphuis, damwal en klip-ingangspoort te bou. Hulle het op die plaas in ‘n soort “huisares” gewoon en hulle gewoontes saans uitgeleef. Om die tradisie van pizza bak te kon uitleef, het hulle ‘n tradisionele oond moes bou en aangesien goeie vakmanskap ook ‘n tradisie was, het die oond nogal mooi uitgekom.

OWNER / CONTACT PERSON: Derick Erasmus

In 1938 Johan Schoeman sold all his interest in Meerhof, including his round house to a dr O Popper who employed a great number of Italian Prisoners of War to undertake his numerous building projects, most of which were neatly done in stone work (044, 045, 042).

 

These Italians lived on the farm on a sort of house arrest but in the evenings they lived their own traditions, one of which was to bake pizza. To be able to do this baking in style, they built this attractive oven.
