Carmel Building in Diagonal Street, Johannesburg. Museum Africa left Yeshiel Panchia right. Johannesburg was always a much-photographed place from its earliest days. It was a city that grew up with photographers and their cameras. As a town of migrants and immigrants, people wanted to send postcards and photographic souvenirs back home. It is a series of photographic juxtapositions of early photographs of the city — dating from the s to the s — with contemporary images of the same street scene or building by photographer Yeshiel Panchia. The book is descriptive rather than analytical, with the emphasis on Johannesburg buildings, places and streets and not its people.
The building is shown in full colour above in an image from the present day. Its rapid development has been in no small measure the result of the fabulous wealth that lay in the goldrich deposits of the now-famous Witwatersrand basin. Rare archival photographs, dating from the eighteen-eighties to the nineteen-forties, are contrasted with vivid scenes of the modern city, providing a hitherto untold portrait of the Place of Gold. Where possible, the modern-day photographs have been shot from the same locations as the originals. Detailed captions provide fascinating comparisons between the old and the new, while also illuminating features that have remained the same.
