This picture was taken in Hillbrow, a high-rise area in Johannesburg. What's incredibly fascinating about Hillbrow, is that it is the densest living space in Africa, with 100 000 people squashed into a 4km2 area. During the 60s and 70s, it was awash with trendy blue-collar white folk. Then apartheid started easing, making it filtratable to those of colour.
Today it is deemed "Little Lago," because it has entirely been taken over by illegal west-African immigrants. You don't hear English or Afrikaans here now, only French.
The 'burb consists of the first post-war modern buildings in the country, and they haven't changed. All the buildings are solid and old...and unfortunately very decrepit now. It's sad, because the apartments should be looked after as historical artefacts!
I love this pic, because the sign is very clearly from the old days. And it also has my tower in it.
