1 Fox Precinct

  1 Fox St, Ferreirasdorp ,   City Centre         05 Jun 2023
On the western edge of historic Joburg’s city centre, in Ferreirasdorp, you’ll find 1 Fox Precinct, a collection of restored warehouses, said to have been constructed in the early 1890s. Then they were used for manufacturing mining equipment for the nearby gold reef, which then stretched along the southern edge of the city centre. You can still glimpse this industrial heritage in fading signs, wonderfully old-fashioned copper-coloured lamps, immense timber frames and corrugated-iron cladding.

There is a car park opposite the entrance on Alexander St and The Main Street Mining District is a five-minute walk away via Fox St, a route which takes you past the Chancellor House open-air museum (once the location of Mandela & Tambo Attorneys offices in the 1950s) and Marco Cianfanelli's marvellous sculpture of a young Nelson Mandela shadow boxing.
