Johannesburg Then and Now

Screen Shot 2014-05-05 at 10.25.57 AM

Our client Travelstart in Cape Town sent us archive footage of Johannesburg in 1954. After a couple of Google Streetview tours and a couple of walking tours, we matched up the original locations and camera angles shot for shot to show side by side what Johannesburg looked like then vs now.

This was a lot of fun to work on! We got chased away by suspicious security guards in a few places, but most people walking past were very friendly and got chatting.

Check out the descriptions of the locations and their history here: and the Cape Town version made by Liam Kelly of Travelstart here:
