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.

No location is given for this postcard - can you help ? Email us.
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.
