Gauteng Province stretches from Pretoria, in the North, to Vereeniging, in the South. Johannesburg is the capital of the Gauteng province in South Africa and is considered to be the unofficial commercial capital of South Africa Johannesburg was founded in 1886, when gold was discovered in the area, and since then there have been four main "phases" of development. The original tented camps, which sprang up almost overnight (giving it the nick-name of "Mushroom City") gave way to tin shantys. These were replaced in turn by large 4 story Edwardian types of brick buildings. Finally it became a modern city (one of the "youngest" cities in the world) with skyscrapers, of which the Carlton Centre is the tallest in South Africa - 50 stories high.

The Hillbrow Tower (formerly the JG Strijdom Tower ) is the equivalent of 90 stories high.

It even has 6 casinos, one of which is the famous Monte Casino, where locals and tourists can play roulette and blackjack .

Although Johannesburg only became officially a city in 1928, it was set up as a town as early as 1886. The town was previously a farm called Randjieslaagte. At that time the Government owned the property and auctioned off 980 stands which lead to the establishment of the town.

WHAT'S ON IN GAUTENG

Good Morning 

 

Please see below a wish list for a project that we are running. On 22 December 2014 a team of volunteers from JHB + Pretoria will be driving down to Port Elizabeth to bring some well-deserved happiness into the lives of 50 Elderly people living in Dismal Poverty.

 

These Ouma’s and Oupa’s are not living in an old age home, but mostly sharing accommodation in the poorest outskirt of Port Elizabeth. This Christmas we want to make it unforgettable for them by taking them a home cooked meal and a goody bag filled with treats. 

 

I am asking you as an INDIVIDUAL to please adopt ONE wish on this list for either a Ouma or a Oupa. Companies will receive 365 Free advertising on our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/vendorsa. If you cannot purchase a gift, please consider donating R60 that we will use to purchase the gifts for your nominated Granny or Grandpa

 

Please email me at lienkie@vendorblender.co.za if you can help!
