The crowd near the Drill Hall on the opening day of the Treason Trial in Johannesburg, December 1956. An amazing photograph by Eli Weinberg, trade union activist and “people’s photographer”. At the Rise and Fall of Apartheid exhibition at MuseuMAfricA, Newtown.
*Who is the boy in the photograph? Most theories say the photographer’s son, but to this day, no-one knows for sure. City Press conducted an exhaustive – and inconclusive – investigation.
