I wanted to share this family photo of Jacobus Hermanus Eksteen with the community. This photo was taken with the opening of the Table Mountain Cable Way in 1929. What is special about this photo is that the four brothers in the photo were also two sets of twins. They were also born on the same day, 5 years apart.

What are the odds of that happening? Just having two sets of twins is rare and then to have them born on the same day of the year!  I will hazard a guess that they twins are not identical, but they are a handsome group of men. Thanks for sharing this photo and story!
