redaksie van Celestine Pretorius A Facebook post on bones found at the Old Toll House in the Montagu Pass grabbed the attention of the public. According to an entry on the Facebook page “SABC News Western Cape”, human remains were found at the toll house. Gerda Stoltz, the curator of the Toll house, confirmed that the allegations were absolute nonsense. The bones are the spine bones of sheep that historically served as children’s toys. They were used as make believe oxen in front of a sheep jaw ‘wagon’. It formed part of an exhibition that was on show in the Toll house.
