Technology and development have swept through Johannesburg and modernized the people, the things they do and even how they see life, but most importantly, it has changed the way our environment looks. Even though we love the new good-looking Johannesburg, we sometimes miss the way it used to look. Old streets have been replaced with good-looking tared roads with Zebra crossings and traffic control lights. Old styled houses have been replaced with sky scrapers that look like they were made of glass.
Change, they say is constant. It may have taken a while, but Johannesburg was not left out of the wave of globalization and the technological advancement that rocked South Africa and made it one of the most beautiful and developed countries in Africa.
We want to compare how Johannesburg looked in the late 1950s to how it looks now, to see how far we have come and to help us better appreciate the journey so far.
