Driving through Johannesburg cbd today. The City of gold under ANC GOVERNMENT
A view of Johannesburg through lenses from a different era
The building is shown in full colour above in an image from the present day. Its rapid development has been in no small measure the result of the fabulous wealth that lay in the goldrich deposits of the now-famous Witwatersrand basin. Rare archival photographs, dating from the eighteen-eighties to the nineteen-forties, are contrasted with vivid scenes of the modern city, providing a hitherto untold portrait of the Place of Gold. Where possible, the modern-day photographs have been shot from the same locations as the originals. Detailed captions provide fascinating comparisons between the old and the new, while also illuminating features that have remained the same. Johannesburg Then and Now is a superb collection of images and text that will delight both local residents and visitors.
