Parktown Archive

An archive containing the records of the Association going back 40+ years is housed at St Margaret’s – in one of Parktown’s most beautiful heritage houses. This has been made possible through the enormous generosity of Ashley Alley – a resident – and his company, Izingwe.

The records comprise the minutes of meetings, every newsletter, correspondence, the campaign against the motorway, the fight for public involvement in planning, all the rezonings of land from July 1973 onward, the records of the Northern Areas Group and other documents of potential historical interest. The archive will prove to be a treasure trove to researchers interested in the social, planning and even political history and heritage of Parktown during the last quarter of the twentieth century.
