Robert G. Ingersoll (1833-99)
Read about the history of whaling on the West Coast. My thanks to Graeme Clemitson for the article and Rob Schaafsma (Schaafsma Sailing Boat Charters) for providing these photographs of the old whaling station at Donkergat, Saldanha. You can view these photos and many more at the Slipway Restaurant in Saldanha Bay
