Photo: Film Tests, 68 Joubert Street, Johannesburg, South Africa, Circa 1951.
Most of the photos were taken by street photographers. You might have noticed that I have used some of these photos before in other layouts, which is just one of the advantages of scanning, restoring and using copies, other advantages are that the originals are preserved and one can print the copies larger than the originals
