Announcing the Historical Association of South Africa (HASA) Biennial Conference. In the prologue to The Go-Between, L.P. Hartley claimed that the “past is a foreign country: they do things differently there”. That is certainly true for 1914, for in that year southern Africa was mired in warfare, rebellion, protest and unrest.

St Mary the less is the second oldest building stand in Johannesburg and celebrates it 125th birthday this year.  It started as a small chapel and grew as Jeppestown fillled up.  It is a truly fascinating little building. In 1986 professor Radford told us it would fall down. Well, it’s still standing and we are spending a good deal on restoring it.
