Pass Office Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2012

On 2 June 1900, two days after taking over Johannesburg, the British, who had been welcomed by local African people as liberators, re-imposed the pass laws of the Z.A.R., effectively threatening any unemployed or self-employed black man with expulsion. This racial legislation secured the workforce needed by the army and the mines.
