About this book:

In the course of 27 short chapters, Linda Fortune draws a vivid picture of a place, time and lifestyle that no longer exist. This book never gets bogged down in politics. Instead, it succeeds in recreating a specific time and specific place with its focus firstly on one family in particular, warts and all.
A bigger picture also emerges, that of a whole community: people - teachers, shop-keepers, barbers, entertainers - and specific places - movie-houses, shops, streets and lanes - still recalled by many who lived there.
Eighteen black and white photographs by photographers such as Cloete Breytenbach, J H Greshoff, George Hallet and Noor Ebrahim, and family snapshots from Linda's own collection, adds to the value of The House in Tyne Street as a recreation of and testament to the District.
