Then and Now #3

Gaston has been finding more fascinating old photos for us. This is Govan Mbeki Ave as it looked in 1953 ........ (it was the only place in town to go shopping, long before de-centralisation took place)

And as it looks now, with the recent development into a pedestrian mall with shaded lock-up trading shelters for the street traders.

  1. Would be interesting to see which buildings still survive. I can spot one on the right down towards the City Hall...
