'The guard tower seen in this image marked the corner of the Robben Island prison compound. It was the point at which the dirt road from the stone quarry met the boundary patrol road.

It was hard work, but we did not mind, as it meant we could leave the prison compound and have the 'freedom' to walk and talk together on the long road to the quarry. These were invigorating times. We would feel the wind in our faces, see the birds flying in freedom and smell the eucalyptus blossoms. I remember seeing gemsbok and springboks grazing in the plains...'
