The old Joburg Post Office

The old Joburg Post Office

Photo 30 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

The Johannesburg Post office was once a mighty building in the center of town opened on the 26 of January 1897.
Now a relic from time past, pillaged to near extinction, a sore sight in the middle of a city and dead in front of City Hall.
A ruin that could be rejuvenated, no one seems to care.

The Cape Town Waterfront is full of wonders, old structures given new life, I was wandering what the silos may become.

Bathroom Renovation

Photo 19 of 356 of the 2015 Collection
Randomly chosen by good friend Shantal Hardy from my Blue collection.

Walking around old buildings is always a treat for me, I tend to “see” what the apocalypse could be like.
But I also see the rejuvenation possibilities and that always puts me in a good mood.
This is a bathroom renovation in one of these buildings, no much use today but just imagine…
