Location description from owner

The Gauteng region

Johannesburg (/d?o??hn?sb?r?/; Afrikaans: [jo???n?sbrx]) also known as Jozi, Joburg, Joni, eGoli or Joeys, abbreviated as JHB, is the largest city in South Africa, by population. Johannesburg is the provincial capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest province in South Africa, having the largest economy of any metropolitan region in Sub-Saharan Africa.[6] The city is one of the 50 largest urban agglomerations in the world,[7] and is also the world's largest city not situated on a river, lake, or coastline.[8]

While Johannesburg is not one of South Africa's three capital cities, it is the seat of the Constitutional Court, which has the final word on interpretation of South Africa's constitution, and is the provincial capital of Gauteng. The city is the source of a large-scale gold and diamond trade, due to its location on the mineral-rich Witwatersrand range of hills.

According to the 2007 Community Survey, the population of the city of Johannesburg was 4,434,827 and the population of the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area was 7,151,447.[9] A broader definition of the Johannesburg metropolitan area, including Ekurhuleni, the West Rand, Soweto and Lenasia, has a population of 10,267,700.[10] The municipal city's land area of 1,645 km2 (635 sq mi) is very large when compared with that of other cities, resulting in a moderate population density of 2,364 /km2 (6,120 /sq mi).

Johannesburg includes Soweto, which was a separate city from the late 1970s until the 1990s. Originally an acronym for "SOuth-WEstern TOwnships", Soweto originated as a collection of settlements on the outskirts of Johannesburg populated mostly by native African workers in the gold-mining industry. Eventually incorporated into Johannesburg, the apartheid government (in power 19481994) separated Soweto from the rest of Johannesburg to make it an entirely black-residents area. The area called Lenasia has always been part of the City of Johannesburg. Lenasia is predominantly populated by those of English-speaking Indian ethnicity.

Sandton

The suburb of Bryanston to the north of Johannesburg is undergoing unprecedented change. The CBD is growing rapidly and thousands of people are moving to the area. In order to give residents and businesses a sense of place we will be publishing a series on the history of Bryanston compiled by Councillor Bill Hedding in the late 1970s. Below is Part One which deals mainly with the archaeological layers of Lone Hill (not strictly part of Bryanston)...

"The area with which this paper deals comprises mainly of the township of Bryanston, but of necessity must include certain contiguous areas such as Bryanston Extensions 7 and 8, Petervale and various farm portions.

The soil is mainly old granite with a very high acid content. The highest point in the area is at the water tower which is 5200ft above sea level. From this point the ground slopes mainly east to west to 4700 ft. Thus the area may be regarded as being in the main some 1000 ft lower than Johannesburg. Because of the nature of the soil the Transvaal Suikerbossie or Sugarbush Protea covered much of this area in bygone times. It tends to pass out if cultivated or in any way tampered with; consequently very little of this attractive tree remains. However, many other indigenous trees are surviving in private gardens and along the Braamfontein Spruit and Klein Jukskei River.
