This photo was taken from a DC-3 doing a flip from Rand Airport over Johannesburg...

First seeing the photo was like wow, how big it is!! (you forget) Amazing! :) And then reading the comments, so interesting and nice just hearing the place names: Westdene, Auckland Park, Melville, SABC, Brixton Tower, Wemmerpan, Triomf - thirty plus years later (and living overseas) hearing the names does take one back in time!! :) and very happy memories :) We used to buy our meat (half a side of beef or lamb) from a butcher in Westdene. Wonder if he's still there?
