Gold mines on the Witwatersrand


I am currently engaged in research on the subject of Johannesburg, the Witwatersrand, and all aspects of the mines, including architecture, miners, Chinese labour, technology, history of individual mines etc etc etc. I need pictures, postcards, printed ephemera et al for a book I am now completing. I have already done considerable research at the Chamber of Mines and am prepared to share this, pre-publication. I can also visit the chamber on anyone's behalf, as I travel up to Joburg quite frequently.

Please contact at above email.

Have a good festive season,

Franco Frescura
