Home of Adam Asvat Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2014

Adam Asvat and his wife Khadija moved here from their home in 11th Street when forced removals were taking place. He had been driven from his birthplace in Sophiatown by the Group Area Act and refused to let that happen again. With sixty-six other residents Mr Asvat founded the Save Pageview Association. They fought the evictions through the Courts, clinging to their homes while bulldozers demolished adjoining walls. Their courageous stand won through and in 1989 the eviction order was dropped.
