Johannesburg was a thriving metropolis of great buildings and the frenzied rush of people going about their affairs much like any other major city in the world."South Africa." By Mike Wilson, Sarah, Maid of Albion, 8/23/11.
It was such a powerhouse of people, ideas and innovations and the strong Boer mentality over rode all.
Today Johannesburg appears to be a run down shanty town with decrepit buildings, boarded up windows, filthy garbage riddled streets and squalor everywhere.
The infamous pass laws were rescinded in the early 90’s and the black man took over the country.
