Johannesburg in 1961 on JHBLive

JHBLive has featured a piece I did on Johannesburg from a movie shot in 1961. The film, all about a bumbling ‘ducktail’ gang, was really hard to watch. Trying to identify the locations and seeing the city and suburbs as they were more than 10 years before I was born more than made up for it.

Here is the JHBLive piece

The slightly longer original piece with additional old pictures and some updated street view comparisons is on my Johannesburg1912 blog here.
