Book

Author:Walker, Michael
Year:2013
Title:The pioneer architects of Johannesburg and their buildings (1886 - 1899) with postcard illustrations
Place:St James
Publisher:The Kalk Bay Historical Assosiation

This book covers the early background of some nineteen overseas pioneer architects who endured the rigours of pre-1900 travel to practise their profession in the mining town of Johannesburg which later, due to the discovery of gold, became a prosperous city.

These architects in their designs of European architecture, foreign to the Transvaal Republic (ZAR), contributed greatly to the adornment of a town bereft of natural beauty.

Their works are illustrated on many picture postcards in an era where postage was cheap and cameras rare.
