Johannesburg, South Africa
Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa, but is not one of the three capital cities (Cape Town,
Pretoria and Bloemfontein). Its current population (2010) is just under 4 million. The city lies on the
eastern plateau area of South Africa known as the Highveld, at an elevation of 1,753 metres.

Jean Collen has emailed us as follows (in 2012) - I think this is Market Street. Oppenheimer Park is on the
right. People in the foreground of the photo are walking towards part of Rissik Street Post Office which faced
onto Market Street. The main entrance to the PO was reached by turning right into Rissik Street. On the
opposite side of Market Street (not shown) was the Belfast department store which changed hands later -
I've forgotten the name of the new store.
