Kensington – A Walk Through Living History – October 16, 2016

Another glorious day in Johannesburg: neither cold nor too hot – ideal for walking. Nice people to walk with and great sites. Thanks to Paul Vermeulen and the Kensington Club for allowing us the use of the car-park and other facilities. Thank you to Isabella Pingle (one of the founding members of the Kensington Heritage Association) for co-hosting and to Nomusa Makhathini for the fantastic photos.
