Secret Johannesburg, by Lisa Johnston, C. L. Bell
The magnetic pull of a rock which is so strong that a coin sticks, a Miniature Railway track, a lighthouse in the sky, get Married in a Boeing 747, the very first example of “Victoria's Secret”, a fantastic private garden open one day per year and whose address is given by request only, a very surprising fine dining home restaurant in Alex, fly over the city in a plane that served for WWII in Egypt, South Africa's oldest monument, a waterfall in the concrete jungle, a fantastic private art collection that can be visited by appointment, the private home of one of South Africa's most prolific and famous artists of the 20th Century….
Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, Johannesburg is still a reserve of well-concealed treasures that only reveal themselves to those who know how to wander off the beaten track, whether residents or visitors. An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew Johannesburg well, or who would like to discover the hidden face of the city.
