Vintage patterns

On our wine tasting tour through the Stellenbosch winelands I came across a little Wool Shop. What are the chances. She didn't have a large stock of yarns, only a few brands really but she did have some ancient pattern books. Most of them are from the 1940's and in Afrikaans ( like dutch) but the patterns are fantastic and the pictures even more so!! I've attempted to document the books and will load all the pics onto my flickr account. Clicking on the images should take you there directly. I'm happy to translate the patterns if anyone wishes to knit anything.
