The Newtown Gallery

in 2011 I joined a walking tour with Past Experiences and they helped me discover parts of Johannesburg that I did not really know from my younger days, in fact discovering Newtown was quite an experience. These images are from my various meanderings into Newtown, mostly during 2011.  There is an overflow from a walk I did down to Diagonal Street amongst these, and it is probable that some images are duplicated in my Johannesburg City galleries too. More information on Newtown may be found at the Newtown Heritage Trail website
