Vintage Postcard, Johannesburg
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.
