Description

South End was once a cosmopolitan suburb bustling with street life, known for its respected schools, is festive hotels, numerous family businesses and its own air fish sellers.

It was home to generations of families who lived in houses which today are only recorded in water colours.

This microcosm of Port Elizabeth life was destroyed during the 1970's under the infamous Group Areas Act, one of the main legislative pillars of the then Apartheid government.

The South End Museum offers glimpses of this lost past.

From its walk-on street map, to historical photographs and displays of the life and times of the people of South End, the Museum provides a living memorial to the victims forcibly removed from South End.
