Boer War: Johannesburg Market | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Boer War: Johannesburg Market

These images come from a lavishly illustrated book published by H. Virtue and Co in 1900 which is a summary of the progress of the Boer War while it was still being fought. I will load up more images as I go as there are so many names and images that I am sure would be of value to those interested in this peiod of history My grandparents were living in Johannesburg in 1910 -it is odd to think they were probably so familiar with this market

12 October 1899 the Boers commandeered Begbie's Foundry for armaments production. On 24 April 1900 a massive explosion in the munitions store destroyed part of the foundry and houses nearby. Sabotage was suspected, but never proved. Full production was resumed before the British occupation five weeks later. Read an account of the explosion here
