If you wish to depart this earth in a puff of smoke, Johannesburg has just the place for you. It has an excellent state of the art crematorium that has kept up with the times. Here is a heritage building with a difference. I have known about the crematorium since I was a child and attended a cremation service for the father of a friend.
You are invited to the launch of Abigail and Lukhanyo Calata's book "My Father Died for This" at the Cradock Four Garden of Remembrance (Cradock) at 11h30 for 12h00 on Friday 20 July 2018. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org There is no charge if you have a day pass, but please confirm if you will be attending as we need the numbers for logistics.
The Barnett Collection A Pictorial Record of Early Johannesburg, published by The Star to commemorate the City's 80th year (Johannesburg, 1966). This large volume of sepia toned photographs of early years of life in Johannesburg was such a success that it became volume 1 of the now much sought after two volume set. The Barnett brothers, David and Joseph were photographers of the town.
