    What a wonderful trip down memory lane your site provided! I was looking for a photo of the the Royal Bioscope where I spent so many happy hours in the 1950s. I’m glad to see it is still in use even if it is a shadow of its former self.

    Hi. I really love your website! What a great job you have done.

    I am interested in finding the Athenaeum Club in Johannesburg that was mentioned in press around 1910.

    I use mostly historical info to support and expand geological and seismological models of various areas in SA.

    I am also very interested in the dynamite explosion of 1896 at the Braamfontein Railway Siding and would be happy to exchange info when I complete my study.

      Thanks Nicky. The Athenaeum club in JHB has been demolished. It was across the road from Joubert Park on Wolmarans Street.

  5. Someone posted this on reddit, and I’ve spent the last hour reading. I’ve sent a lot of the pictures to my dad.

    And I’m sure I’ve been to more than one show you DJ’d at, so props to you Marc.

    Got any information on Melville?

  6. This is really a wonderful and informative site. Thank you so much for doing this.

    I’m curious to know if you have any information on the Orlando Power Plant in Soweto. Any plans and/or early images of it, who designed it etc.

    great site – thank you, my husband and I have spent the entire evening going down memory lane.
    Can you perhaps help with any photos of the interior of the Standard Theatre. I have a piece (a “lady lamp”) that is supposed to have come from one of the podiums or pillars at the base of the banisters of the stairwell within the foyer theatre – and while I bought it simply because I fell in love with it when I clapped eyes on it, I would love to know that it did in fact one upon a time have a more glamorous life and purpose than standing lonely in my dining room.

      Thanks for reading! I only have what I posted I’m afraid. Some of the theatre’s marble stairs went to the Brian Brooke Theatre and I recall reading that Adam Leslie may have had other theatre relics in his. Will let you know if I find anything.

    Such a great inside into our history. Do you Perhaps know what happened to the records of the patients of the Florence Nightingale Hospital
