My book dealer tracked down this rare map of the Johannesburg tram system from 1931. I’ve taken a picture of the full map but as it’s quite a big fold-out map, it doesn’t photograph clearly. There are some smaller and clearer sections of the suburbs presented below as well as tram information printed on the reverse side of the map.
I’ve also added these images to the piece I did on the history of Johannesburg trams earlier on in this blog. Check out the full piece here.
The next piece ‘Braamfontein Pt.4’ and a Pt.1 of a new piece on the ‘Lost Churches of Johannesburg’ will be published around the Easter break.
