Now is a good time for a tasty glass of history!

These are pictures of black South African ethnic groups from the book ABANTU, published in 1979 by Martin West and Jean Morris. It's a pity that we hardly look like this these days! These are pictures of AmaXhosa, AmaZulu, AmaSwati, AmaNdebele, AmaTsonga, BaSotho, BaTswana and then for some reason, I really like the last picture the most! It's titled "The Changing Society" in the book. It's hard to think that that's in the same year in present day Gauteng whereas the other pics were all taken in the former homelands.
