More on LüderitzLüderitz was founded in 1883 by Heinrich Vogelsang, who named it after his sponsor Adolf Lüderitz. The town started off as a trading post for fish and guano. Then in 1909, the discovery of diamonds brought overnight growth to the town. Lüderitz developed as a seaport during that period, but due to its shallow rock bottom, its future as a modern harbor was curtailed.
