Legacy Of Old Joburg

How apt that I took this photo yesterday and it fits today’s one-word prompt so well – Legacy.

It was taken from the 4th floor of the building I was in downtown Joburg. I found the preserved facade of the old building that used to stand there quite beautiful, contrasting with the glass and steel of the modern building which took its place.

If you look carefully, there is nothing behind the facade, no building, rather like a Hollywood set. Yesterday it served as shelter for passing pedestrians from the steady cold rain.

I love the fact that this financial services company took the trouble to preserve this piece of the old building, a legacy of the mining town that became Johannesburg.
