Within a few years, what at one time was a bare stretch of veldt has been converted into a smiling garden with shady lanes and beautiful flower beds, thus forming one of the most attractive pleasure resorts of Johannesburg.

Market Street, Johannesburg

Since the electric tramways started, the chief part of this street, to the south of Market Square, always presents a busy scene, especially at the luncheon hour, when a rush for the cars is made.
