The importance of Eloff Street was reinforced after 17 March , when Park Station was established upon its axis, thus providing new arrivals to the town with an avenue of transition from the quiet lawns of its northern residential area through to the dusty bustle of the business centre. Doctors and nurses began to group their practices in an area around Jeppe Street, north of Von Brandis, a trend which was maintained until the end of the 20th century. A brewery, a mill and several workshops, which were established south and east of the town centre, heralded the direction of future light industrial, warehouse and motor workshop developments.
Residential areas dominated the north and north-eastern sectors, and although these have long vanished, they established a trend which has persisted to the present day. The end of the South African war resulted in renewed economic activity, and in the construction of a number of major buildings.

A quarter century later, this small generation of South African immigrants has risen to break through, en masse, into such key leadership roles that they’re changing the US. But they’ve done it as individuals, and — with the notable exception of commercial spaceflight pioneer Elon Musk — almost invisibly.
In December, the Silicon Valley Business Journal made a remarkable statement regarding four of their first five winners of the US’s high-tech chief executive officer awards, which feature competition from the likes of Google’s Larry Page. And these weren’t even among the award winners. Those include Gauteng brothers Lyndon and Peter Rive, who have built the US’s largest provider of residential clean energy, and Paul Maritz, the outgoing chief executive of cloud computing giant VMware, who was schooled in KwaZulu-Natal.
So small, she says, that there are almost no figures or studies on their impact. Yet new South African networking organisations, such as the Sable Accelerator in California, are springing up as South Africans are suddenly appearing in front of microphones as chief executives and university deans and scientific research team leaders.
