Many of us Johannesburgers grew up going into the city. When we looked for jobs it was in downtown Joburg - everything was there. I myself went to college and worked in the city. What happened? Some of the grand old buildings are slowly being restored but one wonders if they haven't left it all a bit too late as they are now crumbling. The old clock was dismantled and the parts sold by the local inhabitants but the building has a new shiny corrugated roof! There are open sections that go from one street through to another where buildings too unsafe have been demolished - so sad. Big business slowly moved to Sandton as the inner city became too unsafe and others moved in and squatted and the rest is present history.
